"Reviewer E.J. Rupert below got it all wrong blasting this soundtrack for having songs that aren't even in the movie.
That's false. I've seen this movie too many times to know otherwise -- he just probably missed some of the subtle background music in some of the movie's slower scenes.
What's to be appreciated about this soundtrack?
1)The songs from the movie made the soundtrack
2)The songs from specific movie scenes actually matched the mood
3)The songs are performed by a virtual all-star cast from the late'90s and who was hot
4)The two songs (Tony Toni Tone's "Boys & Girls" and Earth Wind & Fire's "September") from non-contemporary groups are appropriate and add something special to the soundtrack
5)This soundtrack has the perfect mix of hip hop and R&B jams you can ride to and chill out to.
Boyz II Men's slow ballad and tribute to loving mothers everywhere "A Song for Mama" is first on the soundtrack because it was also the first song during the movie's intro and photo collage. This single was probably Boyz II Men's last smash hit.
The other top ten smash hits (at least on urban radio airplay) included:
*The fictional group Milestone's (basically Babyface with KCi & JoJo singing backup) single "(Girl) I Care About You."
*The unrequited love ballad by Dru Hill "We're Not Making Love No More" -- arguably the biggest hit from the album.
*The R&B party starter "What About Us" by Total.
*The lush duet remake "(Play Another) Slow Jam (For Me)" sang by Usher and Monica.
*The smooth, one-on-one sex groove "You Are The Man" by En Vogue.
*The somewhat eclectic, funky OutKast rap song feature Cee-Lo "In Due Time" ... (listen to this song's lyrics, they're pretty powerful, spiritual and somewhat religious)
*The 1980s hit remake/Bad Boy sample of an old Yarbrough & Peoples cut for "Don't You Stop What You're Doing" which features P. Diddy, Mase and Lil Kim rapping while Faith Evans sings the hook. This track played during the movie's end credits.
This is one of my all-time favorite movie soundtracks.
Highly recommended purchase for lovers of R&B music."
