Still (2009)

Updated: Nov 19, 2023


Still is the seventh studio album by the Christian gospel music duo BeBe & CeCe Winans, released on October 6, 2009 by the independent label Malaco Records with the B & C imprint.


It is their first studio album together since 1994's Relationships. BeBe and CeCe have sung together in each other's solo records on and off during their break from each other as a musical duo. Still features various producers including their long-time producer Keith Thomas as well as family member Mario Winans, Peter Zizzo, Mervyn Warren and Warryn Campbell among others. Fellow R&B Gospel duo Mary Mary are featured vocalists on the song "Let It Be" and elder sibling Marvin Winans is a featured vocalist on the song "Things." The first single "Close to You" gave BeBe and CeCe their first number song on both Billboard's Hot Gospel Songs and Gospel Airplay charts.


The album would top the Top Gospel Albums chart (their first number one on that chart since Different Lifestyles), number 2 on the Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums and number 12 on the Top 200 Albums charts, their highest charting album to date by the duo on the latter. BeBe and CeCe won two Grammy Awards for Best Contemporary R&B Gospel Album for Still and Best Gospel Performance for the track "Grace" at the 53rd Grammy Awards. Their song "Close to You" won them a Dove Award in a tie for Urban Recorded Song of the Year at the 41st GMA Dove Awards. "Reason to Dance" and "Never Thought" were songs featuring samples of other songs with the former sampling "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'" by Michael Jackson and the latter sampling "That's the Way of the World" by Earth, Wind & Fire.
