Throwback Thursday: Eternal – “Angel of Mine”
In September of 1997, British R&B group Eternal released “Angel of Mine” as the lead single from their greatest hits album.
If you’re aware of this song’s existence, I tip my hat to you. To everyone else: Suprise!
What you’ve only ever known as one of Monica’s biggest hits is, in fact, a cover —- and a cover of a song that was barely a year old at the time. The good news is that Monica did the song justice.
Written by Travon Potts and Rhett Lawrence, “Angel of Mine” is what the hipsters would refer to as “schmaltzy.” However, we love schmaltzy around these parts.
“Angel of Mine” would go on to become Eternal’s 12th top 10 hit in the UK, peaking at No. 4.
