Desiree Heslop, best known as Princess, is a British singer who found chart success in the mid-1980s. In the late-1970s she worked with the group Osibisa. Her debut solo album Princess was composed and produced by Stock Aitken Waterman which contained the hit single, "Say I'm Your Number One". The album spawned five charting singles, and was certified silver in the UK. Heslop signed with Polydor and recorded her second album, All for Love in the United States, but neither the album nor its three singles had much success. In 1989, she released the stand-alone single "Lover Don't Go", which failed to chart. Her third album, Say It, which was slated for release in 1990, was never issued as Princess retired from the music scene and moved to the US after the death of her mother and the assassination of her brother. From 1991 to 2003 she lived in the US, before returning to England in 2003. That same year she formed her own music label with her brother Donovan, OnDa Ground Music Label, which has released all her music since, and released her first single in 14 years, "Ride", with rap ensemble EEDB. A music video was also filmed which referenced her retirement. She appeared in ITV's 2005 production Hit Me, Baby, One More Time, singing Kylie Minogue's "Slow". In April 2014, she released her third album, The Emergence, the first in 27 years. It is the first in a trilogy of albums, the other ones titled The Passion and The One. ~Wikipedia~
Next to the United States, England is the world's largest market for R&B. From Motown in the 1960s to urban contemporary in the 1980s and 1990s, plenty of R&B has been sold in cities like London, Manchester, and Birmingham. A lot of well known urban artists came out of England in the 1980s, including Soul II Soul, Sade, Junior, Billy Ocean, Five Star, and Loose Ends. Another British R&B artist who was active during that decade was former Osibisa singer Princess, who had a hit in 1986 with the sleek "Say I'm Your Number One." Produced by the prolific Mike Stock/Matt Aitken/Pete Waterman team - which is known for its work with Dead or Alive, Rick Astley, Samantha Fox, Bananarama, and others - Princess' first solo album is generally enjoyable even though it isn't as consistent as it could have been. Princess, an expressive singer along the lines of Evelyn "Champagne" King, Sharon Bryant, and Stephanie Mills, shows a lot of promise on the LP's best tracks, which range from "Say I'm Your Number One" (a Top 20 R&B hit in the U.S.) to the melancholy "After the Love Has Gone" and the funky "Just a Teaze." While some parts of the album are excellent, others are merely decent - at times, Princess coasts on her obvious talents instead of going that extra mile. But, overall, this release leaves listeners with a favorable impression of the singer, who, unfortunately, wasn't as successful in the U.S. as she was in England. ~Review by Alex Henderson~
