Let's Make Mixtapes

Keeping your childhood pop icons alive…even the ones you thought were dead.

You know those artists who are really talented at a really young age? The ones who make you–regardless of your age–feel as though you’ve wasted your life? Let’s talk about Tevin Campbell, shall we?

Tevin released 4 studio albums from 1991 to 1999. His debut, T.E.V.I.N., reached number 38 on the U.S. charts (#5 on the R&B charts), and the first single from that album, “Round and Round,” reached number 12 on the charts (3 on the R&B charts.) At the time the single was released (1990), Tevin was 14. Do you remember what you were doing when you were 14? I was reading comic books and popping zits in the mirror.

Oh, and did I mention that Tevin’s single was produced by Prince? Yes, that Prince. Anyway, while I evaluate my life choices, enjoy a really great song by a really talented kid (now adult).
