PHN FemCee-Vember Edition | Monie Love- 'Monie in the Middle' & 'It's A Shame' [VIDEOS]

Monie Love

Monie Love (born Simone Gooden; 2 July 1970) is an English emcee and radio personality in the United States. She is a well-respected figure in British hip hop, and made an impact with American hip hop audiences as a protégéof female American emcee Queen Latifah, as well as through her membership in the late 1980s/early 1990s Native Tongues. Love was one of the first BritHop artists to be signed and distributed worldwide by a major record label. Love was born in the Battersea area of London. She is the younger sister of techno musician Dave Angel, and was a daughter of a London-based, jazz musician father.
Love's debut album, Down To Earth, spawned two, Grammy-nominated hits, "Monie in the Middle" (a high school-set track dealing with a woman's right to determine what she wants out of a relationship) and "It's a Shame (My Sister)" (which sampled The Spinners' "It's a Shame", written for the band by Stevie Wonder) and featured house-music vocalist and then-labelmate Ultra Naté. The album reached #26 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.[1] Love also appears on the song titled "United" from Inner City's third album, Praise.
