Pebbles' Greatest Hits gathers her most popular singles as well as some of her definitive album tracks. Her four number one R&B hits -- "Girlfriend," "Love Makes Things Happen," "Giving You the Benefit," and "Mercedes Boy" -- anchor the album, which also includes "Backyard," her duet with Salt-n-Pepa, "Take Your Time," "Angel," and "Always." Productions by Babyface and L.A. Reid and collaborations with Mario Winans and other singers reaffirm Pebbles' fresh, progressive R&B style. ~ Heather Phares
