“Make Up Your Mind” from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
For every Black sitcom, there’s usually a cast member who has talents beyond acting. Will Smith was the obvious one on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, but a young Tatyana Ali also made space to show off her skills in an episode of the show. Her character Ashley Banks tried to pursue a singing career and the catchy bop “Make Up Your Mind” was released as her breakout single. Though Ashley’s career didn’t last, Tatyana Ali went on to release one studio album and various singles, proving the woman behind the character really had the skillz.
