OLDIES SUNDAY: Louchie Lou X Michie One – Rich Girl (1993)


Make sure you’re working towards your finances when you hear today’s Oldies Sunday selection. Today, we take a trip to the UK to check out Louise Gold and Michelle Charles a.k.a. Ragga/Soul duo Louchie Lou and Michie One’sRich Girl“.

Released through Fashion Records in 1993 (originally 1992 with Sly & Mafia’s “Riot” on the B Side) on the “Fever Pitch Riddim“, “Rich Girl” was Louchie Lou and Michie One’s debut single. The track was inspired by the 1964 track “If I Were A Rich Man” from the “Fiddler On The Roof” Musical. The track found Louchie and Michie sharing lyrics about getting out of Poverty and what they’d do if they were wealthy, but also share that no matter how much money they’d have, they’d never change who they truly are, and money can’t buy love and happiness. “Rich Girl” helped to get Louchie Lou and Michie One’s name out there, but wasn’t an instant hit for them.

Since the release of “Rich Girl”, they duo went on to find chart success, and release albums until they disbanded in 2000. In 2004, American Pop star Gwen Stefani and American Rapper Eve sampled “Rich Girl” for their single, “Rich Girl“, which was produced by Dr. Dre. It went on to become a multiplatinum success.
