Born into a military family, Loving was raised primarily on Long Island, New York, but moved about regularly as her family followed her father's military assignments.
We were going through whatever we were going through, but when I started recording it, we were okay. Like, we weren’t even speaking at all…regardless, I’m going to always have love for Irv.
best known by her stage name Lil' Mo, is an American R&B singer, radio personality, songwriter, and record producer.
We’ve definitely scarred each other in a sense to say. It’s something that, I feel like I’m revealing very much, more than I have on previous records. I always get inspiration from real experiences whether I’m going through it or someone close to me is going through it. Anybody with any sense of logic could see that I rode out. I came to the court, to the trial, three or four times when I was not supposed to. But I’m not going to sit here and let the picture be painted one side anymore.
But that particular song, it was just weird because I was just writing about it because I was mad. I was contractually doing what I was supposed to not be doing, paying those round trip tickets to come and support and it’s crazy because at that time me and Irv weren’t even speaking.
After years of successful collaborations, Lil' Mo would finally release a successful hit of her own, "Superwoman Pt. The single peaked at #11 on Billboard Hot 100 and helped bring underground rapper Fabolous to mainstream attention.
On June 26, 2001, Mo's debut album, Based on a True Story was released to generally favorable reviews.

Mo's next big exposure came in 2000, when she was granted her own production company, Honey Child Entertainment, More collaborations by Ja Rule and Lil' Mo followed, including "I Cry", which repurposed The O'Jays' 1978 hit "Cry Together".
The singer gave a “final” answer on if she and Nelly will ever get back together, talked about how that relationship impacted her music (including the song “Never Should Have,” which she confirmed was about him), and how they had an amazing sex life.
No, seriously, she touches on that with only the nervous Long Island-based laughter that Ashanti can (she’s so charming). Okay, so we were in a space where we were getting back cool.
One thing we love about Red Bull is that their finger is always on the pulse of what’s next.
