Despite the cast creating new tracks for the show featuring like: “Bird’s Eye View,” “Skeletons,” and “Only God Knows,” we would be remiss if we didn’t take a walk down memory lane and revisit some of our favorite throwback songs from the lovely ladies of BET Presents: The Encore.

So sit back, relax and turn your speakers up because we are taking it back to the 1990s and early 2000s. And don’t forget to tune into BET Presents: The Encore every Wednesday at 10 PM ET.

  1. Nivea

    “Danger (Been So Long)” Mystikal featuring Nivea

    Kicking off the 2000s, Nivea opened this classic hit with her sultry vocals, as one of her first features on a major song the solo artist paired perfectly with Mystikal’s raspy lyrics.

  2. “Don’t Mess With My Man”

    A timeless breakout single, the solo artist peaked at No. 8 for 36 weeks on the Billboard chart in 2002 with this catchy tune. 

  3. Shamari DeVoe (Blaque)

    “808”

    Gravity was defied during moments of this music video, and Shamari’s vocals and funky hairstyle sealed the deal!

  4. “As If”

    Y’all remember the movie Bring It On starring Gabrielle Union alongside Kristen Dunst! Well, not only did two members from Blaque appear in the film (Brandi Williams and the late Natina Reed), but two of their songs were featured in the film, including this tune.

  5. Fallon and Felisha King (Cherish)

    “Unappreciated”

    Whew! We can’t forget about this hit that shamelessly puts us in our feelings. Peaking at No. 9 on the Billboard charts in 2006, do you remember where you were when this song dropped?

  6. “Do It to It” 

    Cherish climbed to No. 7 on the charts with this head-bopping hit featuring Sean Paul from The YoungBloodZ; the catchy chorus was more than perfect!

  7. Pamela Long (Total)

    “Can’t You See” (Featuring The Notorious B.I.G.)

    Any song featuring The Notorious B.I.G. is bound to be a hit, and Total and the Brooklyn rapper made magic on this track, no doubt!

  8. “Kissin You”

    Their all-black ensembles tied together this music video with a storyline that had viewers on the edge of their seats.

  9. LeMisha and Irish Grinstead (702)

    “Where My Girls At”

    Reaching the number three spot in 1999 on the Billboard charts, this girl anthem is still a hit to this day! And the silver and black makeup and outfits in the music video are flawless.

  10. “Get It Together”

    From the oversized furniture to the green background and the heavy rain that set the mood in this music video, 702 did not come to play! These are perfect ingredients for 90s visuals.

  11. Kiely Williams (3LW)

    “No More (Baby I’ma Do Right)”

    Kiely was front and center for this 2000 track, with her co-members Naturi Naughton and Adrienne Bailon, and to this day, this song and accompanying music video have stayed strong with more than 35 million views on YouTube.

  12. “Playas Gon Play”

    Handpicked off their breakout album 3LW, Kiely was hitting all of the dance moves in this summer vacation music video. And her swagger on the track is timeless.

  13. Aubrey O'Day (Danity Kane)

    “Showstopper” (featuring Yung Joc)

    Round of applause to Aubrey, who opened the floor to Danity Kane’s breakout single! Stripped straight off the girl group’s self-titled debut album, this was a mid-2000s bop!

  14. “Bad Girl” (featuring Missy Elliott)

    Aubrey O’Day did it again, opening up this seductive track, and the one and only Missy Elliott brought her flair to the record. This 2008 hit is right off of Danity Kane’s sophomore album Welcome to the Dollhouse.
