"Inside My Love" is a 1975 single by Minnie Riperton from her album Adventures in Paradise. It was co-written by Riperton, Leon Ware and Richard Rudolph.

Critical reception[edit]

BBC Music wrote "Of Ware’s tracks, the standout is Inside My Love, where ambiguous yet explicit sexual imagery is tempered by the innocence of Riperton’s vocal."[1]

In a positive review Andy Kellman wrote "Each of the Riperton/Rudolph/Ware songs ooze playful sensuality, desire, and lust -- especially "Inside My Love" (a Top 30 R&B single), a swooning slow jam filled with double entendres."[2]

The song reached just number 97 in Canada.[3]
