All My Life by K-Ci & JoJo
"All My Life" is a R&B love ballad recorded by Jodeci members (and brothers) K-Ci and JoJo. It was released as a single from the duo's album Love Always. It was K-Ci and JoJo's second number-one song, following 2Pac's "How Do U Want It" (on which they were credited as featured vocalists). "All My Life" had earned enough airplay to debut on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 at number fifteen on March 28, 1998, when the single was released to retail stores. It later jumped to number one and stayed there for three weeks. Shayne Ward recorded a cover version for his debut album, Shayne Ward. Nelly samples the song in his single "Wadsyaname", as does Plies in his single "Medicine" featuring Keri Hilson. The opening violin of the song is sampled from "P.S. I Love You" by Frank Sinatra, while the piano part interpolates "Cliffs of Dover" by Eric Johnson. Show video tutorial!
About the Artist
K-Ci and JoJo is an American R&B duo, consisting of brothers Cedric -K-Ci- Hailey (born September 2, 1969) and Joel -Jo-Jo- Hailey (born June 10, 1971). Natives of Charlotte, North Carolina, they were also members of the chart-topping R&B group Jodeci with the DeGrate brothersDeVante and Dalvin.By July 1996, K-Ci and JoJo finally had a hit on their hands as guest artists in 2Pac-s number-one R&B hit -How Do U Want It-. It also topped the Billboard Hot 100. The brothers made their side projects into a full album, Love Always. Released on June 17, 1997, the album spawned two top-ten R&B hits: -You Bring Me Up- (Pop #26) and -Last Night-s Letter- (Pop #46). The minor success of those singles, however, paled in comparison to the success of the album-s third single, -All My Life- (which was dedicated to JoJo-s daughter).
