Karyn White is an American singer who began her artistic career in 1986 as a backing vocalist on Jeff Lorber's album "Private passion".
This is how she got noticed by the Warner Bros Records label, which signed her and allowed her to release her eponymous first album in 1988. And for a first try, it was a real success. The album was a hit on both sides of the Atlantic and produced 3 mega planetary hits which are "The way you love me", "Superwoman" and "Secret rendez-vous", just that !
We will have to wait 3 years and the year 1991 to see the release of the album “Ritual of love”, an album with less success than its predecessor but which, paradoxically, will produce the biggest hit of all his discography with the enormous single "Romantic". And to a lesser extent “The way I feel about you” which will also have a nice run in the Charts.
At the rate of an album every 3 years, the year 1994 will see the release of "Make him do right", album from which will be extracted his last notorious hit namely "Hungah".
To discover or rediscover.

1988 ... what better way to start a career than to grab a first global success. It is done from this first title. An entry into the big leagues for the less shattering. HU-GE !
1988 ... a decidedly exceptional 1988 with a second top hit in the wake. And this time in the Intimist register. The singer displays a very interesting musical versatility. We can't wait to see the rest !
1989 ... an Intimist orientation which is confirmed with this new title. All in a shocking and above all charming duo mode. Unfortunately, the mayonnaise this time around doesn't set. And yet, there is quality in it all. Pity...
1989 ... muscular recovery with a return to 100 % Dance mode. And given the level of success that this title will meet, the bet is more than won !
1989 ... back again in the Intimist and the sanction is not long in coming : the pretty Karyn plunges directly into the depths of the Charts. Go figure ...
1991 ... a small 2 years air hole and she is back to full force like never before. So pumped up that she signed here the biggest success of her career, just that. Once again on pure Dance. It is clear that if she wants to last, she has every interest in not coming out. MAS-TER-FUL !
1991 ... she has learned the lesson well and does not retry the 'emotional' adventure. Race results : new top hit. Admittedly, a notch below the previous one but we will largely be satisfied with it !
1992 ... the rest will prove to be more complicated to manage than expected. In particular this year 1992 which sees her again in the difficulty in spite of an obvious good will. Like what the years follow but do not necessarily look alike ...
1992 ... suddenly, why not try the Intimist adventure again. Bad pick once again unfortunately. There is nothing to do, when she leaves in this field, and except everything at the beginning of her career, the public does not follow ...
1994 ... new year empty, we therefore jump directly to the year 1994. A break once again beneficial since it allows her to come back with a title which offers her her last notorious planetary hit
1994 ... she believed in it to the end on the Intimist side and it paid off in the end thanks to this title. Like what, you should never despair ...
1995 ... since it had worked on the previous move, she said to herself why not a second time. A daring bet and above all a lost bet. This title will be quite simply her last ranked hit, and again, a very small hit. She will try to come back during the 2000s. Unfortunately, lost time ...
