The Moment of Truth is the only studio album by the pop group The Real Milli Vanilli, released in 1991. It is also considered the second album by the controversial group Milli Vanilli.

History

The album includes the original singers from the first album, but with the actual singers on the cover instead of Rob Pilatus and Fab Morvan. Charles Shaw lost the ability to record for this Milli Vanilli album after being paid for silence regarding his involvement with the first Milli Vanilli album.

The Moment of Truth spawned three singles, "Keep on Running", "Nice'N'Easy" and "Too Late (True Love)". In addition, the album features rappers Icy Bro on "Hard as Hell" and Tammy T on "Too Late (True Love)". A Diane Warren-penned song, "When I Die", has been covered by several other artists, including Farian's No Mercy.

A potential source of confusion is the title: the spine for the album indicates that it is titled Keep on Running, but the cover and CD say The Moment of Truth.

There was no U.S. release. Some of the songs from this album were re-recorded with Ray Horton on lead vocals and retitled Try 'N' B, which did see a U.S. release (see below).

"When I Die" appears on soundtrack of the brazilian Soap Opera "Lua Cheia de Amor" in 1991 and received airplay in the radio stations on Brazil.

In 1992, RCA signed on to release the album as the debut of the newly created group Try 'N' B. The self-titled album release Try 'N' B contained 10 songs, including 7 of the original songs of The Moment of Truth. Most of these tracks were rerecorded. There were also three additional tracks not found on The Real Milli Vanilli release. These new songs were:

  • "Ding Dong"
  • "Who Do You Love"
  • "Sexy Eyes", a remake of Dr. Hook's song.

Because of significantly better sales under the name Try 'N' B in America, a slightly modified Try 'N' B debut album was also released internationally.
