Monie in the Middle

Monie Love

“Monie In The Middle” is one of Monie Love’s six top 50 UK hits from her debut album Down To Earth. In the US it topped the Rap Chart and was nominated for a Grammy in 1990.

The song samples Bad Bascomb’s “Black Grass” (1972) and Coke Escovedo’s “I Wouldn’t Change A Thing” (1976).

The story of “Monie In The Middle” is that she is caught in the middle of 2 young men at school – one guy she is trying to get attention from, and another guy that she can’t get to leave her alone.

Love performed the song at the end of episode #4 of season 2 of In Living Color.
