Mel & Kim were born to British and Jamaican parents. In 1985, Mel recorded two demos solo, under Alan Whitehead’s management. The producers loved her voice and they asked her if she would have someone to sing with. That’s how Kim got involved. The girls recorded about five demos (according to Mr. Whitehead). One of these songs – “Wild and Crazy Love”, a Mary Jane Girls cover – can be heard on the Mel and Kim documentary on YouTube. The demos got them signed with Supreme Records, and Nick East – president of Supreme – put them in touch with Stock Aitken Waterman.
“I’m the One Who Really Loves You” was a track included on F.L.M., the first album by Mel and Kim. Although never released internationally as a single, after being subected to a handful of remixes by Clivillés & Cole and a limited North American release, it reached number eleven on the Hot Dance Club chart.
It was originally recorded and released by British singer Austin Howard in 1986. Both versions were written and produced by Stock Aitken Waterman.
