Mahogany Soul is the second studio album by American R&B-soul singer–songwriter Angie Stone, released in the United States on October 16, 2001 by J Records. The single "Wish I Didn't Miss You" peaked at number seven in Australia,[6] Stone's only such honor in the country, due to the radio release of a dance remix of the song. The remix, "More Than a Woman" released this time featuring R&B singer, Joe and was featured on Stone's 2005 greatest hits album, Stone Hits: The Very Best of Angie Stone.
