This Moment Is Mine is the third album released by R&B singer Chanté Moore. The album was released on May 25, 1999, four and a half years after her previous album, A Love Supreme. The album gave her her biggest hit to date, "Chante's Got a Man", which became her first top ten single on the Billboard Hot 100 as well as a #2 hit on the R&B charts.

Album Information[edit]

"If I Gave Love" was intended to be released as a single from her album This Moment Is Mine, but was ultimately scrapped.[2] Rodney Jerkins had rewritten a "nearly identical song" for singer Jennifer Lopez entitled If You Had My Love.[3][4] Jerkins rewrote "If I Gave Love" with the same arrangement for Lopez and just changed the title to "If You Had My Love" after it was requested by Sean Combs, Lopez's boyfriend and one of On the 6's producers. Moore said:

"He wrote the same song for her. I heard that it was because Puff Daddy walked in and heard my song and said 'I want that song,' and he [Rodney] was like 'Well that's already taken. We wrote that for Chante,' and he was like 'I want that song.' So Rodney wrote, really, the same song.".[5]
