45)Monie Love – It’s A Shame (My Sister)

Song: It’s A Shame (My Sister)

Album: Down To Earth

Year: 1990

This takes me back to being a kid. Back when female MCs on major labels were required to have something to say, it seemed like singles were coming out that were TOO serious (Nikki D’s “Daddy’s Little Girl”, MC Lyte’s “Poor Georgie”, etc.) but “It’s A Shame” was perfectly upbeat and not too deep for my young mind to grasp. Monie Love flowed her ass off in this tale of helping a friend cope with emotional bereavement, I still get geeked when it comes on during Kid & Play’s ever so classic film Class Act. Come to find out The Spinners’ original song was written by none other than Stevie Wonder.
