Betty Boo is a Hip Hop pioneer and 90’s icon, as well as a a multi-platinum selling, Brit- and Ivor Novello- Award-winning singer/songwriter/producer from West London.
In 1987, a chance meeting in McDonald’s on Shepherd’s Bush Green with Public Enemy after the Def Jam show at Hammersmith, led to her supporting the band on their tour in the US with her Hip Hop trio She Rockers.
In 1989 she featured as featured vocalist on The Beatmasters’ Top 10 single – Hey DJ/I Can’t Dance (To That Music You’re Playing) Her first solo single, Doin’ The Do, was released the following year and heralded Betty Boo as a phenomenon in her own right. Doin’ The Do and the follow-up Where Are You Baby? were both top 10 singles. They were written and demoed by Betty Boo in her bedroom using basic sampling gear – a process she would return to in recent years.
