“Remember That?” Track Of The Day: Blackstreet
“Before I Let You Go” is a song by R&B group Blackstreet, recorded for the group’s self-titled debut album (1994). The song was released as the third single for the album in November of 1994. The song was notable for featuring lead vocals from Dave Hollister who joined the group upon the album’s release.
“Before I Let You Go” peaked at number seven on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and number two on the Hot R&B Singles chart. This made it the group’s highest charting single on both charts respectively before it was surpassed by “No Diggity” merely two years later. The song lyrically focuses on the narrator who does not want to lose the love of his life out of concern that she is no longer romantically interested and wants her to “say goodnight” as opposed to “say goodbye.” Remember That?
