Album

Pronounced Jah-Nay is the debut studio album by American R&B group Zhané, released on February 15, 1994 on Motown Records. The album features songs produced and co-written by members of hip hop band Naughty by Nature. The album peaked at number thirty-seven on the Billboard 200 chart. By October 1996 it was certified platinum in sales by the RIAA, after sales exceeding one million copies in the United States. Pronounced Jah-Nay is definitely one of the better R&B albums of the '90s - unfortunately, this album's success was never repeated, and that was most likely due to lousy marketing and single choices for the duo's sophomore outing, Saturday Night.

Like Pronounced Jah-Nay itself, lets kick off with the big hit, ʻHey Mr DJ, a tune that puts the swing into things, thanks to a handy piano sample snipped from Michael Wycoffs 1982 club groover ʻLooking Up To You.

Pronounced Jah-Nay was the excellent debut CD from the duo Jean Norris and Renee Neaufville, better known as Zhane. The ladies were great singers and songwriters with a style all their own. Their short cropped hairstyles and B- Girl gear added to the party vibe of their first two big singles, Hey Mr. DJ and Groove Thang.
