After her appearance on the Notorious B.I.G.'s 1994 album Ready to Die, Diana King received a contract with the Work label.
Previously a collaborator of Andrew Tosh, the reggae/dancehall vocalist released two albums during 1995, Tougher Than Love and Shy Guy.
Think Like a Girl followed in 1997. International tours pushed her name to the forefront, however King remained low key.
She took a few years off to spend more time with her children. By the new millennium, King was in negotiations with Maverick. In 2002, King issued the funkadelic third album Respect.
