Artiestinformatie

Geboortedatum   13-12-1960
Land   Amerika

Afro-Amerikaanse house- en r&b-zangeres, geboren als Patricia Daniels in 1960 in Paterson, New Jersey.



Als jongste van zes kinderen begint Adeva rond haar twaalfde met zingen in het kerkkoor waar ze tien jaar deel van uitmaakt, tenslotte aangesteld als dirigent en zangcoach.



Tussen het lesgeven door op school vindt ze regelmatig de tijd om deel te nemen aan talentenjachten. Uiteindelijk mag ze niet meer meedoen aan verschillende wedstrijden omdat ze al zo vaak gewonnen heeft. Dat is de reden waarom ze professioneel verde rgaat, te beginnen in de lokale clubscène halverwege de jaren '80.



Gaat samenwerken met Mike Cameron van Smack Music Productions. Onder de productionele leiding van Mike Cameron neemt Adeva in 1988 haar eerste 12 inch-single In and Out of My Life op voor het New Yorkse Easy Street-label [EasyStreet EZS-7536]. Tekent een platencontract met Cooltempo Records in 1988.


Songtekst

You've got to show me, got to show me a little
You've got to give me, got to give me a little
Yes, all I want is, all I want is a little
What all I need is a little respect

What you want, baby, I got
And what you need, you know that I've got it
All I'm askin' for is a little respect
When you come home bring it to me, give it to me
Your heart should go when you come on
Respect me, oh, hey, hey, hey, hey

I ain't gonna do you wrong while you're gone
I ain't gonna do you wrong because I don't wanna
All I'm askin' for is a little respect

Respect me, hey, hey
Respect me
(Gotta have a little bit) respect me, hey, hey, hey
(I need a little bit) respect me (respect) hey, hey, hey, hey

I'm out to give you all my money
But all I'm askin' in return honey
Is to give me my proper, my proper respect
When you come home bring it to me, give it to me
Your heart should go when you come on
Respect me, ooohooohooohooohooohoooh

Oooh, your kisses sweeter than honey
So guess what, here is all o' my money
All I'm askin' for is a little respect

(Gotta have a little bit) respect me, hey, hey
(I need a little bit) respect me (Respect)
(Gotta have a little bit) respect me, hey, hey, hey
(I need a little bit) respect me (respect)
Break it down

Respect me baby when we're all alone
Respect me sugar when you come home
Respect me baby when you know it's oh so good
Respect me baby like I know you could
Respect me, respect me me
Respect me, oh I hey, hey, hey

(Gotta have a little bit, just a little bit)
(I need a little bit respect)
(Gotta have a little bit, just a little bit)
(I need a little bit respect)

Come on, respect me whem I'm cookin'
Come on, respect me whem I'm cleanin'
Come on, respect me whem I'm workin'
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey

Shoodoodoo, shoodoodoo

You've got to show me, got to show me a little
You've got to give me, got to give me a little
Yes, all I want is, all I want is a little
What all I need is a little (Respect) hey, hey, hey, hey
