#Roommates, it’s only been a little over a week since the legendary Babyface went head-to-head with Teddy Riley in the highly-anticipated Instagram live battle that reached over 4 million viewers. Sensing the need that fans want even more of his iconic catalog of hits, Babyface has decided to do something very special for Mother’s Day—and it involves the classic “Waiting To Exhale” soundtrack.
During a recent appearance on @TheViewABC, Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds chatted with the ladies about the musical battle that fans are still talking about, why he’s waited 5 years to release new music and the very special Mother’s Day treat he has in the works to celebrate one of the most successful movie soundtracks in history.
Babyface revealed that during his battle with Teddy, many were asking him to play songs from the soundtrack and he only ended up playing one, which was “Count On Me” by Whitney Houston and CeCe Winans—but those requests led him to his next Instagram live show:
“There were so many people on the Instagram Live who wanted to hear music from the “Waiting To Exhale” [soundtrack] so I thought this would be great, Mother’s Day, to play the “Waiting To Exhale” album, tell stories, tell how it all happened and talk about the artists. Because that was half the fun of it all in doing the Instagram Live was being able to tell stories. People were so interested in that. So I thought it would be fun to do as well.”
Since practically everyone showed up for Babyface’s last Instagram live music session, perhaps this time artists who appeared on the soundtrack will pop in and also provide commentary on what it was like working with him and recording the classic tracks.
We know one thing, we can’t wait!
