Today marks the 27th anniversary of Deborah Cox’s self-titled debut album.
The album included the singles ‘Sentimental’, ‘Who Do U Love’, ‘Where Do We Go From Here’, ‘The Sound Of My Tears’ and ‘Just Be Good To Me’.
‘Who Do U Love’ was the biggest worldwide hit from the album, peaking at #2 in New Zealand and going Platinum, and charting in the Top 20 in Australia, Canada and the US. It was also her first #1 hit on the US Dance Club Songs chart. Deborah has since collected thirteen #1 dance hits.
‘Where Do We Go From Here’ was the song which impressed executive Clive Davis, and led to Deborah signing with Arista Records. The song later became a Top 20 hit in New Zealand.
Writers on the album include Diane Warren, Babyface, Dallas Austin, Keith Crouch and Daryl Simmons. Deborah co-wrote three of the songs on the album, including the Top 5 R&B hit ‘Sentimental’.
The album has been certified Platinum in Canada and Gold in the US, and also earned Deborah a Juno Award for Best R&B/Soul Recording.
In 2012, the album was remastered and re-released with a bonus 12-track remix disc. This edition is available to stream and purchase on digital music services as ‘Deborah Cox (Expanded)’.
