Kenneth Edmonds, also known as Babyface, hails from Indianapolis. Many people known him as a famous songwriter and producer, associated with musical films like Waiting to Exhale. He’s also, of course, performed his share of music. I remember receiving the album as a gift for Christmas that year and being less than pleased with it, dismissing the lyrics as a bit misogynist—let alone not something a woman would sing. Then I realized that Babyface wrote them.
