25 Hip-Hop Artists People Think Are One-Hit Wonders (But Totally Aren't)

22. Monie Love

Major Hit: "Monie In The Middle" (1990)

Other Hit: "It's a Shame (My Sister)" (1990)


UK femcee Monie Love made some big guest appearances (including Queen Latifah's "Ladies First" and De La Soul's "Buddy," among others) before she signed a deal wtih Warner Brothers. Her first album, Down To Earth, released in 1990, yielded two Grammy-nominated songs. Though most rap heads remember her for "Monie in the Middle," her follow-up song "It's A Shame (My Sister)" was the bigger hit, reaching the Top 40 on the pop charts.
