Love and Sas were a Canadian R&B-, funk-, and rap-influenced pop duo who scored several Top 40 hits on Canadian pop charts. Lovena 'Love' Fox had worked as a back-up singer for Bon Jovi, The Payolas, and Colin James. Saskia 'Sas' Garel was born in Kingston, Jamaica of Chinese, Spanish, and Afro-Caribbean descent, and had jazz and classical voice training.

The two, who were considered[according to whom?] the Canadian equivalent of American female rappers Salt-N-Pepa, released their first album Call My Name in 1991 which spawned the singles "I Don't Need Yo' Kiss" and "Call My Name". "Don't Stop Now" and "Once in a Lifetime".

"I Don't Need Yo' Kiss" was significant for featuring one of the first Canadian female rap performances, which was performed by Sas.

The duo toured Canada, U.S., and the UK, but split in 1993.
