Love Child is the second album released by the New York-based Latin freestyle trio Sweet Sensation. Released in April 1990, it is the follow-up to the group's platinum-selling 1988 debut album, Take It While It's Hot. Like its predecessor, Love Child had an up-tempo feel, but also included lavish R&B-styled ballads.
The album's title song is a cover version of a #2 R&B/#1 Pop smash by the Supremes. Sweet Sensation's version went to #15 on Billboard's dance chart and #13 on Billboard's pop chart. However, it was the album's second single that gave the group its biggest hit ever, "If Wishes Came True," a power ballad featuring vocals by Betty Lebron. The song spent one week at #1 on Billboard's pop chart in September 1990, while going top-ten on Billboard's R&B and Adult Contemporary charts. The album also spawned two more hit singles: "Each and Every Time" (#51) and "One Good Man" (#72). The album itself peaked at #78 on the Billboard 200 albums chart and was certified platinum by the RIAA during the spring of 1991.
