In the '90s, the ladies of SWV—Cheryl “Coko” Clemons, Leanne “Lelee” Lyons and Tamara “Taj” George—were on top of the music world. From the streets of New York to superstardom, they had a string of top ten R&B hits including “I’m So Into You,” “Right Here,” “Downtown,” “Weak,” and “You’re Always On My Mind.” With over 15 million albums sold, a Grammy® nomination, an American Music Award nomination and 11 Billboard Music Awards nominations, SWV was unstoppable. But while they seemed to have it all, the drama behind the scenes tore the group apart. It didn’t just end, it ended badly; and in 1998 the members of SWV went their separate ways.
After marriage, kids and other endeavors, the trio decided it was time to reunite for a chance to recapture their fame. 1n 2012, their sultry sound was introduced to a whole new generation of fans with new album I Miss Us, which earned a Grammy® nod in 2013 for “Best Traditional R&B Performance.” SWV REUNITED follows these three strong and talented women as they figure out how to trust again—on and off the stage—and perform with each other. The premiere episode follows SWV on the first stop of the comeback tour at Wembley Stadium in London, but new secrets about Coko’s health threaten the rehabilitated bond of the group.
This season, SWV begins to record a new album, but shocking secrets from the past, management drama, health emergencies and devastating personal problems threaten the future of the group.
