Old School Lovin’ – Chanté Moore | Top 40 Chart Performance, Story and Song Meaning

Chart Performance: R&B (#19); 1995

Story Behind The Song By Ed Osborne

In between her first and second albums Chanté guested on Satisfy You, a single by former Guy member, Damion “Crazy Legs” Hall. Chante’s sophomore effort, A Love Supreme, appeared later in 1994 along with the lead-off track, Old School Lovin’. This time around she added “producer” to her songwriting and singing credits. In 1995, Chanté added yet another star to her resume when she joined the likes of Whitney Houston and Mary J. Blige on the fabulously successful Waiting To Exhale soundtrack with the Moore-penned Wey U. despite all this high-profile work, Chanté had yet to crack the R&B Top 10 or cross over to pop. Nor would she for four long years. In 1999 Chanté released her long-awaited third album with the telling title, This Moment Is Mine. Indeed, it was. Lead-off single, Chante’s Got A Man, moved to #2 R&B (staying there for five weeks), reached #10 on the pop side, and grabbed a Soul Train Music Award nomination for Best R&B/Soul Single – Female.
