Angie Stone – Wish I Didn’t Miss You (J Records)

Born in South Carolina, Angela Stone first came to fame in the late 70’s as a member of female threesome The Sequence (along with Cheryl Cook and Gwendolyn Chisolm) on Sugarhill Records, with the highly remembered ‘Funk You Up’. She would soon after collaborate with Kurtis Mantronik under his Mantronix guise and Lenny Kravitz, with the early 90’s seeing her becoming a member of Vertical Hold.
Adding her voice to the Neo-Soul vibe that was around at the time, she released her debut-album – ‘Black Diamond’ – on Arista back in 1999. Her biggest success so far happening 2 years later with the highly memorable ‘Wish I Didn’t Miss You’ built on sample of The O’Jays‘s classic ‘Backstabbers’, from her ‘Mahogany Soul’ album on J Records.
