“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.
The single was a massive commercial success. It held the number one position on the Billboard Hot 100 for 14 weeks, from August 27 to November 26, 1994. At the time, the song tied a record for the most weeks at number one that had been set by Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” in late 1992 and early 1993. Boyz II Men would later break their own record in 1996 with “One Sweet Day”, a collaboration with Mariah Carey, which remained at number one on the Hot 100 for 16 weeks beginning in December 1995. “I’ll Make Love to You” also topped the U.S. R&B and adult contemporary charts for nine and three weeks, respectively, in 1994. It sold 1,627,000 copies domestically, earning a platinum certification from the Recording Industry Association of America for shipments of over one million copies. It also peaked at number 5 in the United Kingdom.
“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. It ranks at number 19 on Billboard’s All-Time Top 100 Songs.
