Songs in the same vein as Whip Appeal 1988-1991.

The ones with that sugar coated sprinkle of the late 80's early 90's production. Heavy synth sections to name a few details for example. This even comes to mind. And I'm a tad embarrassed for putting up this link, when it's not the best body of work in Hip Hop. It's just to show you what I'm saying.

Most likely other LA/Face ballads of roughly the same time period.

.

"Soon As I Get Home" - Babyface, 1989

.

"Two Occasions" - The Deele, 1987

.

"Roni", and also "Rock Wit'cha', - Bobby Brown, 1988/1989 album version or Quiet Storm remix

.

'Can We Talk' - Tevin Campbell, ~1992/1993

.

I apologize if any of these suggestions are too facetious or "pop" for whatever mix or project you are looking to put together.

.

.

Maybe other "smooth" offerings (depending how far away from the 'Whip Appeal' model you want to go), from less-well-remembered jack/swing groups and productions? 'Still in Love' - Troop ~1989, and 'All I Do Is Think of You' - Troop ~1989, 'Closer Than Just Friends' - Surface, 1989, 'Make It Last Forever' - Keith Sweat, ~1987.

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras
