One Wish, Deborah Cox’s long-awaited second album, continues
the incredible success this talented artist has achieved from the start
of her career...
She recently recalled the excitement of her first meeting with Clive
Davis back in 1993. He would become her Executive Producer the following
year, but the memory of that first meeting still has a special place
in her heart. "He played our demo and told us [Deborah and her
writing partner, Lascelles Stephens] what he thought about our songs.
Then he began to give us very specific pointers - 'There's got to be
some kind of strong hook within the lyric,' for example, 'more than
just a catchy melody.' He spoke about winning song structure, where
the chorus ends the song to the fade, little things like that. Big things!
We were very, very open to criticism, and this was good criticism. It
was the first time someone had taken the time, and we felt honored."
As a result, not only did "Where Do We Go From Here" from
that original demo make it onto Deborah's self-titled Arista debut album,
but she and Lascelles also contributed three more tunes of their own.
That's a pretty fair rookie batting average on a disc dominated by compositions
from such major league writers and producers as Babyface, Daryl Simmons,
Dallas Austin and others.
The result was a string of R&B-pop crossovers - "Sentimental,"
"Who Do U Love," "Where Do We Go From Here" and
"The Sound Of My Tears" - that kept her on the charts (and
on the road, doing concerts with the likes of Keith Sweat) from late-Summer
'95 until early '97. Her album was certified Gold by the RIAA. Deborah's
hit chart run extended even further when Arista issued her single "Things
Just Ain't The Same" (produced by Atlanta's Mass Avenue team),
from the Gold "Money Talks" movie soundtrack.
Jump ahead a couple of years and the first track to be recorded for
One Wish was "One Day You Will," written by Diane Warren and
produced by David Foster. Then there's "Nobody's Supposed To Be
Here," a song co-written by Montell Jordan and his musical director
Shep Crawford. Its gospel flavor and Crawford's "straight outta
church piano" gave it a live feel, "like it was recorded in
concert," Deborah says.
"Nobody's Supposed To Be Here" was the perfect fit. Not only
was it chosen as the first single release from One Wish, but its remixed
version, courtesy of New York DJ Hex Hector, took on a life of its own.
In no time, it was a certified Platinum smash and soon after became
longest running R&B #1 in Billboard history.
The second track that Deborah cut with Montell was Crawford's "We
Can't Be Friends," a duet with R.L. from Next which she describes
as "a beautiful ballad with an 'Endless Love' feeling. It's an
R&B ballad that's reminiscent of the classic duets from back in
the day." And it was another success for Deborah, quickly going
Deborah also stepped into hip hop with "September," a song
she wrote with New York producer Stevie J (of Bad Boy) and Gordon Chambers.
Similarly, "It's Over Now" was written and produced by Kay-Gee
of Naughty By Nature, his first production outside of Next. "It's
a real different element," Deborah states. "People aren't
even gonna believe that it's me."
The title track of the album, "One Wish," was produced by
DJ Quik and Deborah describes the track as "a party joint."
Quik also raps on the track. Rodney Jerkins wrote and produced two tracks
in Los Angeles, "I Never Knew" and "Just When I Think
I'm Over You," which Deborah calls "a great uptempo record."
Also crossing international lines is "I Won't Give Up" which
Deborah and Lascelles wrote with Trina Powell (a Columbia artist). It
takes Deborah back to her jazz roots, and was produced by Lascelles
One Wish comes full circle with another Diane Warren song, "Couldn't
We," produced in Atlanta and New York by Daryl Simmons; and Hex
Hector's club remix of "Things Just Ain't the Same." Another
#1 for Deborah, it stayed on New York radio for over a year, becoming
"one of those rediscovered records that DJs started playing in
the clubs and it just built up this buzz," Deborah says. "Now
it's one of the hottest dance records around."
Deborah was born in Canada to Guyanese parents with strong musical roots.
An extremely shy youngster, she credits mom with her musical awakening.
"I was six or seven when I heard Gladys Knight's "Help Me
Make It Through the Night." My mother used to play that record
all the time. Lou Rawls, Joe Tex, Al Green, those were the records my
mom used to play. Also Bob Marley and Billie Holiday - but when I heard
Gladys, that's what sparked interest for me."
Reared in a conservative Catholic school atmosphere, Deborah was interested
in track and field, journalism and writing poetry, but music was her
secret desire. After winning a local tv talent showcase at age 11, she
began singing commercial jingles. This led to work with local bands
and by age 15, she often found herself playing at gigs until 1:00 a.m.
She was learning first-hand about management, promotion and the business.
During the day at Claude Watson School for the Performing Arts, she
was studying classical music and broadening her knowledge of jazz, moving
from Billie Holiday to Sarah Vaughan, Dinah Washington, Brook Benton
Then in 1989, Deborah hooked up with her high school friend, bassist
and songwriter Lascelles Stephens. The partnership yielded the 4-song
demo that he began pitching to record labels. Deborah was hired to sing
backup with Celine Dion, but once Clive Davis and Arista came into view,
Deborah left the tour to focus on her album. By mid-'95, sessions were
completed in Los Angeles, Nashville, New York and Atlanta.
The whirlwind of touring and promotion took Deborah throughout North
America, playing such prestigious venues as the Fox Theatre in Detroit,
the Apollo in Harlem and the Universal Amphitheatre in Los Angles. She
was nominated for Best New R&B Vocalist at the American Music Awards
in 1997, and won back-to-back JUNO awards in Canada as Best R&B
Female Artist for her self-titled debut album (in '96) and for "Things
Just Ain't The Same" (in '97). There have been multiple promotion
trips to Australia (where "Who Do U Love" was a Platinum seller)
and Japan; as well as repeated trips to England, Germany and Holland.
"I couldn't ask for anything more," Deborah says. "It's
been nothing but great blessings. One Wish marked a tremendous growth
from the first album, I feel a lot more comfortable in my skin. People
see that I have my own voice, my own opinion, my own likes. The album
really reflects that."
Deborah recently put her voice together with another artist in a very
special performance. "Same Script, Different Cast," is her
incredible duet with Whitney Houston from Whitney — The Greatest
Hits. With their voices sounding so good together, it wasn’t long
before it became a #1 Urban AC smash. Looks like Deborah’s string
of successes just keeps getting longer.
