Back in 1990, with her image based on a cartoon character called ‘Betty Boop’ I initially dismissed Betty Boo as ‘just another female rapper’, along with other acts such as Nenah Cherry and ‘Salt ‘n’ Peppa’. When the second long-player ‘Grrr its Betty Boo’ arrived in 1992, I realised that Boo was a ‘cut above the rest’, co-producing her own music in the studio after completing a course in Sound Technology. This was a period when sampling sounds from other records was in vogue.
‘Boomania’ (48:29) features the singles ‘Hey DY/I Can’t Dance’, the wonderful ‘Where are you Baby’ and a weaker fourth single ’24 Hours’. It is not ALL rapping; ‘Boo’s Boogie’ is an instrumental, and ‘Valentine’s Day’ has an atmospheric backing with singing. The title ‘Boo is Booming’ has a familiar-sounding sample which I suspect is taken from the hit ‘Montego Bay’. Towards the end there are some duller tracks, like ‘Mumbo Jumbo’ and the repetitive groove of ‘Shame’ (5:04).
Although I prefer Betty Boo’s SECOND album to ‘Boomania’, this was still a promising debut. When Betty Boo’s chart positions started falling in 1992, it appears that she was dropped by the major label WEA, which seems disappointing and short-sighted given the quality of her two albums. I read that Madonna wanted to sign her to her own ‘Maverick’ label, but nothing came of it for some reason. Betty Boo later appeared on the ITV show ‘Loose Women’, and said there was a forthcoming new album, but as far as I know it never appeared.
I absolutely love this album. Betty Boo has a great deal of musical talent. Her style is utterly class and superb!!.
I definitely rate this very highly to any Dance/House music fan.
