Chanté Moore is an award-winning R&B and Jazz singer, songwriter, and actress. Moore has incredible range as she is frequently able to show off her whistle register and Minnie Riperton–reminiscent pipes.
“Chanté’s Got a Man” was the first single from Moore’s third album This Moment Is Mine. It became her first top ten single on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at No. 10. Featuring an interpolation of the 1971 Osmond’s single “One Bad Apple,” the song earned a Soul Train Music Award nomination for Single of the Year, Female.
In the song Chanté tells her friends that all men aren’t bad and all men aren’t the same. She taunts them saying: “It hurts me your man’s leaving you alone…..creeping out, cheating on ya…. beating on ya.” She continues, “I’m sorry that your man ain’t home, I’m sorry that yours left you alone.” The irony of one of the versions of the song is that she says all of this only to find out at the end that her man was doing some dirt too!
