Relationships (1994)

Updated: Nov 12, 2023


Relationships is the sixth studio album by the Christian gospel music duo BeBe & CeCe Winans, released on September 8, 1994 on Sparrow Records and Capitol Records.


BeBe & CeCe's first new studio album in three years, after the mainstream success of Different Lifestyles, they return with an album that is more personal. In CeCe's words: "A lot of people think we're supposed to be perfect, but we're people too, we go through hurt and pain. We get songs through experiences and as we reveal these things, people are touched." Relationships feature notable singles "If Anything Ever Happened To You," "Love of My Life" and "Count It All Joy."


The album climbed to number 4 on the Top Gospel Albums, number 7 on the Top Christian Albums, number 19 on the Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums and number 111 on the Top 200 Albums charts in Billboard magazine and was certified Gold in 1995 by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America). BeBe served as executive producer as well as co-producing a majority of the tracks, along with David Foster, Cedric Caldwell and Rhett Lawrence with additional production.

After the release of Relationships, BeBe and CeCe took a break as a duo to focus on their solo careers with CeCe releasing her debut solo album Alone In His Presence in 1995 and BeBe releasing his self-titled debut solo album in 1997.

They would reunite 15 years later for their next release Still in 2009.
