Miki Howard Review

by Craig Lytle

Since making her debut as a solo artists in 1986 with the smash single "Come Share My Love," Miki Howard no doubt had her eyes set on attaining that number one song. This album proves to be the facilitator of that quest. There were four featured singles on this set. The first release, the uptempo dance cut "Ain't Nuthin' in the World," grooved its way up the Billboard R&B charts to number one. The Chicago native stayed in the Top Three with "Love Under New Management" and "Until You Come Back to Me (That's What I'm Gonna Do)." The former is testimonial expression from the soul songstress while the latter is a re-make of the Aretha Franklin classic. Respectively, they peaked at number two and three. The fourth release was the pleading, mid-tempo number "Come Back to Me." Cresting at 53 on the charts, it too is an excellent selection. An honorable mention goes to "I'll Be Your Shoulder." A duet with one of the consummate soulman of the day, Gerald Levert. This is a superb effort by Miki Howard.
