Pebbles

Although dance-pop singer Pebbles scored several hit singles on her own during the '80s, she became best-known as the manager (and creator) of one of the genre's biggest hit machines the following decade. Born Perri Arnette McKissack in Oakland, California, on August 29, 1964, the singer (who is the cousin of R&B singer Cherelle) got her start in the early '80s as a backup singer for percussionist/band leader Bill Summers and the funk outfit Con Funk Shun, helping co-pen one of the latter band's hits, "Body Lovers." By the end of the decade, however, McKissack was ready to strike out on her own, going by the name Pebbles and signing a recording contract with MCA. The singer's self-titled 1988 debut featured contributions from both Babyface and Michael Sembello (as well as renowned producer L.A. Reid, who Pebbles would eventually marry), and spawned a pair of Top Five hits, "Girlfriend" and "Mercedes Boy," pushing the album to platinum status stateside.

Pebbles' follow-up recording, 1990's Always, fared nearly as well, going gold and spawning another Top Five hit with "Giving You the Benefit," while both Salt-N-Pepa and Cherelle made guest appearances on the record. Instead of pursuing her solo career, Pebbles then founded her own record label, Savvy Records, and created the Atlanta, Georgia-based hip-hop/dance trio TLC (comprised of members Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins, Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas, and Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes). Guiding TLC's career and serving as their manager, the trio became one of pop's biggest hitmaking groups by 1994, thanks to their 11-time-platinum smash Crazysexycool. Pebbles returned back to her solo career in 1995 with her third release overall, Straight from the Heart. Although it was a much more mature work (and featured contributions from such producers/songwriters as Sean "Puffy" Combs, Kyle West, and Organized Noize), it failed to match the commercial success of its predecessors. 2000 saw the release of a 14-track career overview on the Hip-O label with Greatest Hits. ~ Greg Prato, Rovi

Girlfriend you know you were the best he ever had!
He's just a canine running round in heat! RUFF! LOL!
This is still the bomb....love it!
Smoothest keyboards.
TLC sued her
I love Pebbles, her songs defined R&B! My favorites are Girlfriend, Giving You The Benefit, Always, and Back Yard. Just to name a few, the 80's was when real R&B music was made.
Lucky dudes both La.Reid & Terry lewis dats life. D........ Master
I love Pebbles. She had a lot of jams out in the 80s. Mercedes Boy and Always are my jams!

A great singer.. Don't know her personally despite of what happened in the past, but I'm glad she's changed her life to Christ....

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 day. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lover's name will come on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works

Brings me back..and yes she is an evil greedy troll
williceg

Shady McGrady should be her name, Pebbles where is the damn money owed to TLC, her interview with Wendy did'nt tell me nothing we did'nt already know

I love her music
I remember buying my first Pebbles cassette -- I was so excited. There's no other feeling like opening a new cassette -- the new cassette smell. This generation will NEVER experience the simple joys of the 80's and early 90's.
jeffreycrowe l l
what she did to TLC was wrong, and people will remember this as part of her legacy.
I love pebbles!!!
