In a Word or 2 is the second and final album released by Monie Love. It was released on March 23, 1993, by Warner Bros. Records and was mostly produced by Marley Marl, with Prince producing two tracks on the album. Monie and producer Aaron "Freedom" Lyles produced the song "I'm A Believer" while producer/remixer Steve "Silk" Hurley was brought in for additional production and remix for the first single "Born To B.R.E.E.D.". In a Word or 2 was not as successful as her previous effort, only making it to #75 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and 36 on the Top Heatseekers.

Two singles found some success on the charts, the Prince-produced "Born 2 B.R.E.E.D." reached to 89 on the Billboard Hot 100, while "Full Term Love" peaked at 96 on the Billboard Hot 100 and has appeared on the Class Act soundtrack. Both had great success on the Hot Hip Hop Songs chart, on which they peaked at #7.
