“Superwoman (Pt. II)” is the most successful song Lil’ Mo has to this date! The remix features the then-unknown rap lyricist, Fabolous. This throwback single was released in 2001 off the debut album ‘Based On A True Story.’ Many listeners can agree that “Superwoman” is an anthem promoting the empowerment of women, globally. The remix was produced by hip hop’s very own DJ Clue and Ken “Duro” Ifill, brought to you by Elektra Records.
FUN FACTS! –> Originally, the song was released as the Brian Michael Cox–produced “Superwoman, Pt. I” in February 2001 to generally mixed reviews. However, because the “Pt. 1” version failed to attain successful radio airplay, Elektra Records had no other choice but to push Lil’ Mo’s debut album back to a later release in 2001. Upset, Lil’ Mo tried to convince Elektra that “Superwoman” would be a smash hit; to prove it, Mo contacted DJ Clue to remix the “Superwoman” track with a beat that he was holding for rap duo M.O.P. At first Clue was not in support of the idea, but when he loved the results, he premiered it on New York City’s Hot 97 radio show. Following its premiere, the song began to circulate on numerous mixtapes and began to chart on Billboard; however because Billboard prohibited remixes from charting, Mo had to convince Elektra to re-release the single in an alternate title, now famously known as “Superwoman, Pt. II.” – via wikipedia.org
