Love's Taken Over

 
In the early 90s, Chante Moore distinguished herself from the pack of soul singers by refusing to stoop to the depths of vocalists who gave detailed descriptions about how "freaky" they were, opting instead for a sensual but tasteful image.  This classy approach has been rewarded with a loyal following that has made all of her albums consistent sellers. 

Raised in the church, Moore made her recording debut on El DeBarge's "You Know What I Like" single; she performed background vocals.  Later that year, her own Precious was released on MCA Records.  Led by the lead single "Love's Taken Over," the album introduced a new talent in the r&b arena. 1995's Love Supreme was hailed as one of the most underrated titles of the year, despite the success of the hit singles "Old School Lovin'" and "This Time." 

After a brief hiatus, during which she divorced longtime husband Kadeem Hardison, Moore returned in a big way with "Chante's Got A Man," the largest record of her career.  The Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis-produced song hit #2 in 1999, and was particularly memorable for her lines about "baby daddies." 

Moore changed course by recording in Atlanta with veteran hitmaker Jermaine Dupri for Exposed.  Their partnership resulted in the infectious "Straight Up," heralding the beginning of a new phase in Moore's career.   She married singer Kenny Lattimore in January 2002.
