B Angie B (born 1968) is an African American female R&B vocalist and dancer who came onto the music scene in the early 1990s.
B Angie B known by many as The Queen Of Dance, was born Angela R. Boyd in 1968 in the small rural town of Morton, Mississippi. She grew up singing and honing her vocals in a local church. She graduated from Morton High School in the Scott County School District in 1984. A few years later, she and her best friend made a decision to move to out west to pursue a singing/music career together. The friend ended up getting pregnant and Boyd relocated to California alone.
It was not long after this relocation, that Boyd was discovered by producer (and future husband) James Earley and brought to MC Hammer’s attention that Angie was a vocalist. Hammer is also the one credited with giving Boyd her stage name B Angie B when one day Hammer spoke the words “just be Angie”. She sang on “Pump It Up (Here’s the News)” on Hammer’s Let’s Get It Started album (the version re-released on Capitol Records in 1988) and she became a backup singer during his concert tour.
In 1991, Hammer signed B Angie B to his Capitol-distributed Bust It imprint.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). In April 1991 her debut single was released , a remake of the Emotions, “I Dont Want To Lose Your Love”. The single peaked at #54 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and #2 on the US R&B chart. The single would become B Angie B’s only Billboard Hot 100 entry.
