AllMusic Review by William Ruhlmann
There are moments when the hip-hop rhythms kick in, but basically Blackgirl is an attempt to construct an African-American female trio in a '60s/'70s smooth soul style. Not surprisingly in the retro-phobic R&B market, that failed to gain them an audience for Treat U Right, despite their protestations that they were "'90s girls"; they aren't distinctive enough to make that matter much.

    1. You're welcome love. Sadly, this is their only album before they called it quits. 😢 It's a shame because they had a lot of potential but the R&B girl group craze was in full effect by 1994 after TLC, SWV, Eternal, En Vogue, Xscape etc.. and this was just in 1994. By 1996, 702 and Total hit the scene and many other girl groups who released debut albums had to compete with the new acts and the already established ones as well. It was a great time for R&B if you were a consumer during this time.
