I'll Make Love to You

"I'll Make Love to You" is a 1994 number-one hit single by R&B group Boyz II Men for the Motown label. The song, which was written by Babyface, was the lead single from their second album II. As the lead single raced up the charts, it was at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 for fourteen weeks, from August 27 to November 26 1994. The song set a record for the most weeks at number one at the time (tied with Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You" from late 1992 to early 1993). This record was later broken by "One Sweet Day", a collaboration between Boyz II Men and Mariah Carey, which remained at #1 on the Hot 100 for sixteen weeks. "I'll Make Love To You" also topped the U.S. R&B and adult contemporary charts in 1994, and the single went Top 5 in the United Kingdom.

A platinum-selling single, "I'll Make Love to You" won the 1995 Grammy Award for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals and two American Music Awards for Favorite Pop/Rock Single and Favorite Soul/R&B Single.

The song is featured on the video game Karaoke Revolution Volume 2.

The song ranks at #17 on Billboard's All Time Top 100.
