Mo'Hogany CD (1998)
Live & Let Die buy CD music The sophomore release from Monifah, MO'HOGANY can best be described as a combination of sex, sass and soul. Enjoying collaboration/production assistance from Mario Winans, Jack Knight and Rob Fusari, Monifah has completed a second album well worth the wait after her 1995 debut, MOODS...MOMENTS. From her remake of "Bad Girl" with it's rock guitars, powerful drum programming and guest spot from Queen Pen, to the sexual "Touch It," Monifah offers her listeners diverse songwriting and vocals that switch from high energy Jeep rockers ("What's The Deal") to soft, subtle ballads ("Better Half Of Me.")
"Would You," a cut produced and written by Heavy D and Tony Dofat, is a deeply introspective, moody look into love's potential. "Fallin' In Love" was produced by Queen Latifah and features a guest performance from the royal one. "Whatcha Gonna Do," which features Rufus Blaq and Femme Fatal, was produced by Chad Elliot and Alvin West.
