Midnite Lover is the fourth studio album released by Jamaican singer Shaggy. The album became the follow-up to Shaggy's career-making album Boombastic; however, it did not fare as well. The album features covers of Erma Franklin's "Piece of My Heart", and Bob Marley's "Thank You Lord", which features guest vocals from Ky-Mani Marley. 50,000 copies of the album were sold in the UK. "Piece of My Heart" and "My Dream" were the only two singles released from the album.[5]
