Secret Rendezvous (Karyn White)
#6 on the US Hot 100
The fourth single from White’s eponymous debut album out charted the previous three releases but tends to get overshadowed by at least two of them (first solo hit The Way You Love Me and female empowerment anthem Superwoman). It’s a sweet piece of late 1980s dance/R&B courtesy of LA Reid, Babyface and Daryl Simmons who wrote and produced it.
Fun fact: Secret Rendezvous was the first single from the album to miss #1 on the R&B charts where it stalled at #4.
