Female Preacher is the debut, and to date the only album recorded by Tonya Davis, a US rapper better known as Overweight Pooch, which was released in 1991 on A&M Records. Though, the record indicated that Pooch had some potential, her album didn't go far commercially.

Three songs were issued on single including a promo release, "Hip House Party", initially also promoted on Jam Harder: The A&M Underground Dance Compilation in 1990.[1] The compilation scored at number sixty-three on the U.S. R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and at number one-hundred-thirty-one on the Top 200 Billboard Albums.[2] "Ace Is a Spade", originally titled as "Ace a Spade", contained samples of "New Day" and the James Brown's hit "Soul Power"[3] The final single from the set "I Like It", it featured background vocals by CeCe Peniston who also contributed to the set with additioanal two tracks that she also co-wrote; "Kickin' Da Blues" and "Female Preacher". The single itself reached number sixteen in the U.S. Billboard Hot Dance/Music Club Play chart,[4] and peaked at number fifty-eight on the UK Singles Chart[5] in January 1992.
