¡We can no longer be a bunch of empty minds living in critical times refusing to recognize real lies!

"I Love Your Smile" is a song recorded by R&B singer Shanice and released in 1991 as the first single from her album Inner Child. The song features saxophonist Branford Marsalis. It met success in many countries, including U.S., where it reached #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number one on the Billboard R&B charts. To date, it is her best known and most successful hit.[1] Talib Kweli referenced the song in his single "Hot Thing".

The song features a saxophone solo by Branford Marsalis. The radio and video version of the song edits out the rap bridge from the album version. Janet Jackson and René Elizondo can be heard laughing at the end of the song. The track was crafted by producer Louis Biancaniello and the vocals were captured by producer Narada Michael Walden.

In the music video, Shanice is in a studio having several pictures taken by a photographer. One scene shows her in a leather jacket, another has her sitting in a chair in front of a microphone stand, and another has her dancing with several backup dancers. In the middle of the video, Shanice walks through the park and the photographer hides behind a tree while he takes more pictures of her. At the end, Shanice offers to take a picture of a family, and then takes a picture of the photographer.

"I Love Your Smile" reached #2 on the Hot 100 (blocked by Right Said Fred's I'm Too Sexy) and #1 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart. It also reached #2 in the UK Singles Chart (blocked by Shakespear's Sister's "Stay"), when it was re-released in 1992. It was a top ten hit in France, Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, Australia and Austria.


  1. Mad catchy hook... & she later proved that she could REALLY SANG... like hit those Minnie Riperton-type notes. Shanice was so charming & winning in this vid. It was a nice intro.
