Crystal Waters’ “100% Pure Love” Music Video:
Crystal Waters’ first Billboard hit wasn’t even supposed to be for her. She originally wrote “Gypsy Woman (She’s Homeless)” for Ultra Nate, but the label was so stunned by the song they wanted Crystal to sing it herself. the song reached the #8 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1991. “100% Pure Love” lived on the charts for 45 weeks and peaked at #11.
What’s Crystal up to now? She’s teamed up with Yolanda Be Cool for “Le Bump.” You can hear the clip below:

According to Crystal’s Twitter account it sounds like Crystal and CeCe Peniston teamed up for a couple shows, but apparently they are the only ones that knew when and where, because I’ve check both of their sites and came up empty. It’s a shame because that would be a show I wouldn’t miss!
