About I Love Your Smile

"I Love Your Smile" is a song by American singer Shanice, released in 1991 as the lead single from her second studio album Inner Child (1991). The song features a saxophone solo by Branford Marsalis as well as laughter from Janet Jackson and Ren√© Elizondo Jr. near the end of the song. The track was produced by Louis Biancaniello, with vocals produced by Narada Michael Walden. The radio version of the song removes the rap bridge from the album version. To date, "I Love Your Smile" is Shanice's best known and most successful hit. It peaked at number two on the US Billboard Hot 100 behind "Don't Let The Sun Go Down on Me" by George Michael and Elton John and "I'm Too Sexy" by Right Said Fred, and it topped the US Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks for 4 weeks in December 1991 and January 1992. In Europe, "I Love Your Smile" peaked at number two on the UK Singles Chart and reached the top of the Dutch Top 40 in the Netherlands. The single also peaked within the top ten on the charts in Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, Australia and Austria. In 1992, it was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance. Shanice performed this song as the first musical guest on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on May 25, 1992.
