Patricia Louise Holte-Edwards (born May 24, 1944), better known under the stage name Patti LaBelle, is a renowned Grammy Award-winning American singer, author, and actress who has spent over 50 years in the music industry. LaBelle spent 16 years as lead singer of Patti LaBelle and the Bluebelles, who changed their name to Labelle in the early 1970s and released the iconic disco song “Lady Marmalade”.
LaBelle started her solo career shortly after the group disbanded in 1977 and crossed over to pop music with “On My Own”, “If You Asked Me To”, “Stir It Up”, and “New Attitude”.
Patti collaborated with Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis in 1994 (The Right Kinda Lover) and 1997 (When You Talk About Love), but back in 1987 when Jam/Lewis were at the peak of their hit-making career came this one-off single from the Dragnet soundtrack, written and produced by Jam/Lewis and remixed by Louil Silas Jr and Flyte Tyme, re-edits by Greg Royal.
