Oldie Butta Goodie Bar: Monica – Angel of Mine

Where were you when you first heard this track?

Angel of Mine was featured on Monica’s second studio album, The Boy is Mine, released in 1998. The album, produced mainly by Dallas Austin, Jermaine Dupri and Rodney Jerkins,  spawned several hits, including: The Boy is Mine (duet with Brandy), First Night, Street Symphony and For you I will. The album was Monica’s biggest success and garnered triple-Platinum sales and a couple Grammy nominations.

When this song came out, ya girl was going through the motions of High School. I LOVED the video with ChokLit fella Tyrese bringin his sexy swagga! All laid up on Monica’s bed in the video like What! And Monica always had this sass to her, you could always hear in it her voice and see it in her videos. Do you remember how she had tattoos on her arms but would use arm bands to cover them so as not to influence her fans to get tatted up! Nice to see that responsibility in an Artist.

As I got older, I learned to love the lyrics alot more and appreciate the song. I also found out that the song is actually a cover of a track by UK artist Eternal. Check her version out below. Its nice as well, but still feeling Monica’s version. Recently, I heard American Idol contestant, Anoop also sang a version of this song, and did his thing with it…

Eternal’s version
