Background and release[edit]

The album gave Moore another US Top 20 R&B hit with the single "Old School Lovin'". The album also contains a remake of the Alicia Myers hit "I Want to Thank You," as well as a medley/mash-up of the Deniece Williams song "Free" and the Commodores song "Sail On". Track 11, "Mood", also appears on the soundtrack to the Eddie Murphy film Beverly Hills Cop III.[citation needed] She was highly influenced by Tramaine Hawkins, Andrae’ Crouch and her mother who was a singer.[4]
