Tevin Campbell: T.E.V.I.N. (1991)

By Scott Goldfine

Having already sung on hit songs by Quincy Jones and Prince, 15-year-old sensation Tevin Campbell finally delivers his debut, “T.E.V.I.N.” Sounding like New Edition meets Stevie Wonder, the exuberant teenager sings with range and tone that belie his age.

But while Campbell is destined for stardom, only a few of this album’s 13 tunes rise above the all-too-often routine level of contemporary R&B.
