Gems is the twelfth studio album by American singer Patti LaBelle. It was released by MCA Records on June 7, 1994 in the United States. The album features a hip-hop-esque remake of DeBarge's 1983 hit, 'All This Love', produced by Teddy Riley. Gems peaked at number forty-eight on the US Billboard 200 and went gold with sales shipping past the 500,000 mark. The album is notable for the single 'The Right Kinda Lover', which brought LaBelle a new legion of fans thanks to its production by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis and its video which had LaBelle performing a seductress who chooses 'the right mate' through a machine and if one man rubbed her the wrong way, she'd use a button to get rid of them.

Allmusic editor Jose F. Promis found that Gems 'doesn't necessarily rank as one of the singer's crowning achievements, but as the title (and cliché) implies, this set certainly offers more than a few gems to unearth. Gems also features a couple of prolific productions courtesy of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis (on the set's up-tempo first single, 'The Right Kinda Lover') and new jack swing maestro Teddy Riley (on LaBelle's mellow yet hypnotic cover of DeBarge's 'All This Love'). The true standout, however, is 'Stay in My Corner.' That song, with its gospel undertones, features Labelle wailing as only she can, holding out her famous long notes and delivering a truly mesmerizing performance.'[1]

Patti Labelle Live Performances

'On My Own' is a duet by American singers Patti LaBelle and Michael McDonald. It was written and produced by Burt Bacharach and his former wife Carole Bayer Sager and originally recorded by singer Dionne Warwick for inclusion on her album Friends (1985). Eventually recorded by LaBelle and McDonald for her eighth studio album Winner in You (1986), It was released as the album's lead single in March 1986. Lyrically, 'On My Own' was based on a relationship that had reached its end with both parties going their separate ways in a melancholy state with the occasional option of coming back together again one day.

Samfirm for pc. It was often stated[by whom?] the two performers were in separate cities when they recorded their individual parts which were then 'married' during mixing. This was reflected in the music video produced to promote the song, which depicted LaBelle and McDonald performing the song simultaneously on different coasts.[1] The singers were shown on separate sides of a split screen, each singing the song while walking through apartments which had identical layouts but different decor and furniture. The views from their respective porches, where they finished the song, made clear their separation by the continent.

Chart performance[edit]

The song became the biggest hit single ever for both singers as it reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for three weeks. 'On My Own' also reached the number-one spot on the then-Black Singles chart (for four weeks), and if it were not for 'Greatest Love of All' by Whitney Houston and 'Live to Tell' by Madonna, it might have reached the number-one spot on the Adult Contemporary chart as well ('On My Own' instead had to settle for a number-two peak on the AC chart, also for three weeks). In the United Kingdom, the song peaked at number two on the UK Singles Chart, going gold (it was the 22nd best-selling single of 1986 in the United Kingdom). The song was initially not intended to be a duet at all, but LaBelle decided to invite McDonald to help her turn the song into a duet, as she stated: 'The song was sent to me and I did a version of it but somehow it just didn't quite work. We were going over things I'd done and we talked about turning it into a duet. Someone asked, 'If you could do it with anyone, who would you sing it with?', and Michael was my first choice.'[2]
