Album Review

Commercial "pop-rappers" like England's Betty Boo get little respect from rap's hardcore, which tends to be suspicious of any type of success in the pop or dance-music markets. Clever and witty, the dance-oriented Boomania underscores the fact that not all pop-rappers are created equal — "Doin' the Do," "Hey DJ (I Can't Dance to the Music You're Playing)," and other melodic, escapist club hits have a lot more bite and substance than the music of Vanilla Ice and Icy Blu. Boo, a white female with a sexy "glamour girl" image, keeps things fun and lighthearted, and makes no pretense of being a hardcore rapper. As much promise as Boo showed on this album, she wasn't someone who could count on longevity — and was pretty much forgotten a few years later.

Much maligned..but genius

A great pop record and seventeen years after originally buying it one can still play it the whole way through without getting bored or skipping tracks, unlike a lot of albums one plays from that era. Yes, you've got the cheesy singles but cheesy or not they still get the foot tapping. Look at album tracks like "Valentine's Day", "Don't Know What To Do" and "Leave Me Alone" if you're not convinced there is more to Betty Boo...

At last BOOMANIA on i Tunes

I have waited a long while for this album on i Tunes. Used to own this on vinyl and it was class when it was released, and is still a great album now. Betty Boo was a great, fun, bouncy artist. Pure very late 80's/early 90's Pop. Buy it and see!

All my best wishes to Betty Boo!

Getting ready to go out on a Saturday night just wasn't the same without 'doin the do' What Fab times we had! Thanks betty and hope to hear some new stuff from you soon.

Self-styled U.K. pop-rap diva Betty Boo (born Alison Clarkson) began her music career as a teenager, singing in the rap trio the She-Rockers, the duo Hit 'N' Run, and studying sound engineering at school. Originally dubbed Betty Boop because of her resemblance to the classic cartoon character, the half-Malaysian, half-Scottish singer became Betty Boo when lawyers representing Betty Boop objected to her use of the name.
