It’s Robin S’ “Show Me Love.”

Did you know it?

Robin Stone, better known by her stage name Robin S, rose to fame in the early 1990s with a penchant for pulsing house hits. She scored three number ones on the Billboard Hot Dance Club chart including her debut single “Show Me Love” and follow up “Luv 4 Luv.”

The New York native released the original version of “Show Me Love” in 1990, though the track only went on to see moderate success. In 1993, the song was remixed by the Swedish DJ and producer StoneBridge and re-released under the name Robin S. Armed with a new moniker and a fresh perspective, the single began to climb the charts, settling in at No. 1. The follow-up singles “Luv 4 Luv” and “What I Do Best” found similar success.

The radio mix of “Show Me Love” continues to be a staple in the European club scene. In 2008, the single re-entered the Dutch Top 40, showcasing the song’s lasting appeal.

For her second album, she began working with producers Eric “E-Smoove” Miller and Todd Terry. Her sophomore effort, From Now On, was released in 1997 via Atlantic Records. In addition to house music, the album featured a mix of gospel and contemporary R&B flavors. The album’s first single, “It Must Be Love,” spent two weeks at No. 1 on the Hot Dance Club chart.

Between album cycles, she found success with “Givin’ U All That I’ve Got” which was featured on the soundtrack for Space Jam.
