Tevin Campbell I’m Ready Released 30 Years Ago Today

The 90s produced its fair share of great music when it came to hip hop and R&B. One of the bigger stars during that time was Tevin Campbell. Tevin was a child sensation who released his first album at the age of 15. T.E.V.I.N. was the name of his first album and it was released a week after his 15th birthday. Before its release, Campbell was already involved with a couple of onscreen roles. Campbell was known for his role on the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air during this time. The album went platinum with the help of eight singles being put out for the album. A little less than two years later, Tevin Campbell released his sophomore album. The name of it was I’m Ready and he released the project 30 years ago today. I’m Ready was released a couple weeks before his 17th birthday.

Despite being young, this was a grown-up R&B album that had tracks for everyone. I’m Ready went on to sell over two million records and was looked at as a classic upon its release. I’m Ready was nominated for a Grammy Award in the Best R&B Album category. Can We Talk was the first single released off the album. It went gold, spent 3 weeks atop of the R&B charts and won a Soul Train Music Award for Male R&B single. Can We Talk also was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance. I’m Ready would be his next single and despite not being as successful it was a great track.
