The ladies retrace their roots, going back to the spot they used to rehearse in. Kenny Ortiz surprises the girls with a visit, but he reveals a secret that could change the girls’ relationship forever.
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 10 R&B hits, including I’m So Into You, Right Here, Downtown, Weak and You’re Always on My Mind. With more than 15 million albums sold, a Grammy nomination, an American Music Award nomination and 11 Billboard Music Award 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. In 2012, their sultry sound was introduced to a whole new generation of fans with a 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. Can the ladies of SWV finally come to terms with the issues that ended their friendship and career once before? Will they be able to put their differences aside to recapture fame?
