B Angie B biography
B Angie B (born in 1968) is an African American female Pop and R&B vocalist and dancer who debuted onto the music scene in the early 1990s
.In 1991, Hammer signed B Angie B to his Capitol-distributed Bust It label. That year, Bust It/Capitol released her self-titled debut album, which James Earley produced with his Northern California colleague Felton Pilate (formerly of the funk band Con Funk Shun). Bust It/Capitol released a few songs from B Angie B's album as singles, including "So Much Love" and remakes of two 1970s soul hits: Rufus & Chaka Khan's "Sweet Thing" and the Emotions' "I Don't Want To Lose Your Love". The latter single became a minor hit. In April 1991, the album debuted at #11 on the Billboard Hip-hop/R&B charts and #132 on the Pop charts, with album sales peaking at a mediocre 137,000 copies. The sales did not quite satisfy Capitol, and Boyd was dropped from the label a little over a year later.
She appeared in the Kid 'n Play farce Class Act and sang on the soundtrack title track "Class Act (Work That Body)". The title track was also released as a video. B Angie B released a second album in 1995 under the Bust It label (with independent distribution). She dropped the first "B" and was known as Angie B. The album did not make an impact on radio or charts.
Her 1991 solo debut B Angie B on Capitol records was reissued in 2005 with a bonus DVD along with previous releases from former label mates Oaktown 357. After its 2005 re-issue, the album sold an additional 4,000 copies as of 2008. After becoming disillusioned with the music industry as a whole, she quietly left her recording career behind. In the summer of 2009, new music was released on her Myspace page (www.myspace.com/bangiebmusic), including a remake of "Ring My Bell". She has stated that she does not intend to release an album, preferring live performance and internet traffic. On the day of May 9, 2012, B Angie B released a follow up single titled "I Wanna Be (Right Here With You)."
