Albuversary: Power Of A Woman by Eternal

One of my favourite albums of all time albums was released 25 years ago today. Twenty. Five. YEARS! Where has that time gone?

Here is some #FanArt #DigitalArt I have done to mark the occasion.

Power Of A Woman was the anticipated second album form Eternal, the first for them as a threesome, after Louise’s departure. It did the business chart wise hitting No.1 in the UK R&B Chart, and peaking at No.6 in the UK Top 40 Album Chart, and enjoyed a 38 week run in the Chart.

The album was certified 2x Platinum in the UK for sales of over 600,000 and was also a hit in Japan, selling over 79, 000 copies..

It featured a great run of singles, all hitting the top ten of the UK Singles Chart: Power Of A Woman (No.5), I Am Blessed (No.7), Good Thing (No. 8) and Secrets (No.9), with Who Are You getting a Japan only release. The ballad featuring Bebe Winans (I Wanna Be The Only One) It Will Never End and Bob Marley cover Redemption Song we’re both rumoured to be planned singles, but a change in direction happened when the band were chosen to record ballad Someday for Walt Disney’s Hunchback Of Notre Dame. This album also contains the Dallas Austin produced track Your Smile, which I would’ve loved to have seen as a single release.

The album had a 2 disc re-release the following year featuring a different cover. The second disc was a collection of their No.1 dance remixes of their previous singles.

This album has sold over 2 million copies worldwide.
