This week, Net Chat features the group SWV (Sisters With Voices) and excerpts from the trio's recent chat on America Online.
Q:How do you feel about Tupac Shakur's death, and did you know him?
A:We knew Tupac very well. We don't really believe that he's dead. We love him to death. It hurts us about every time we thing about it.
Q:How long did it take to make New Beginning?
A:It took forever. Or it seemed like it, anyway. We started a year late. Coko got pregnant, and we waited for her to have the baby. Once we were in the studio, it took about three months.
Q:What's the hardest thing to do in your business?
A:Concentrate. It's hard to focus. There are a lot of people and things coming at you at the same time.
Q:Do you all feel pressured sometimes to always keep a hit on the charts?
A:Sometimes, yeah. It's hard, because people expect so much from you. It's hard to maintain that.
Q:Who were your inspirations?
A:Whitney Houston, Aretha Franklin, Bobby Brown, New Edition - so many!
Q:Do you have a favorite song from all the songs you've made?
A:We like Love Is So Amazing.
Q:Are you going to do any soundtracks?
A:We're supposed to be on the Livin' Single soundtrack and make a gospel CD with other artists.
