So this week, I’m doing something a little different. I was thinking of doing something different, and thought to share a little bit of music from the movies. I watched Waiting to Exhale with my mom, who had read the book of the same title. It was very well written and a great story to watch unfold. I was about 20 years old when I saw it, and I thought it was a typical girlfriends get together and talk bad about their exes. I was pleasantly surprised by how the story developed. Their friendship seemed to be the important takeaway and you somehow had to make sure all your friendships after this movie had to be that strong. The women were strong as individuals too with tons of personality. I won’t give the story away if you haven’t seen it, but it’s a good cult classic movie from the 90s that I totally recommend you watch on a lazy weekend.
The soundtrack honestly could stand on its own. It’s one of my favorite movie soundtracks that I could listen to front to back with no skips. I guess with Whitney Houston, Chaka Khan, Brandy, and SWV on one album, you can’t go wrong with a hit! My favorite song has to be the Chante’ Moore song “Wey U” that is melodic and relaxing. It’s still a favorite of mine after all these years. The soundtrack is about as classic as the movie.
