Regina, whose real name is Regina Richards, is an American singer-songwriter who began her artistic career by frequenting the New York Punk and New-Wave scene.
His first single "Tyger" was released in 1980. Single that will go somewhat unnoticed. Ditto for "Deep dreaming" which will be released shortly after.
Annoyed by these repeated failures, she turned only to songwriting and that's how she composed "Baby love", a song she wanted to see performed by another singer.
But her record company refuses and forces her to perform it herself. Happy inspiration because this time, the success is indeed at the rendezvous for the singer, the single is a real worldwide hit. We are then in 1986.
The album "Curiosity", which comes out in stride and of which "Baby love" is a part, will produce three other hits : "Beat of love", "Head on" and "Extraordinary love".
A second album "Best kept secret" should have been released but will never see the light of day in the end.
For the anecdote, the quality of "Baby love" is such that Dannii Minogue, who takes over the title in 1991, will in turn experience significant success with this title.
To discover or rediscover.

1980 ... a very typical US Rock sound for a debut that in no way suggests the singer's future career
1980 ... in the same vein. Like an aftertaste of Bangles but without having the same career unfortunately ...
1986 ... 6 years have passed and we find a Regina literally metamorphosed and in a totally different register !
1986 ... now, hard rock is over. Now it's Dance, Dance, Dance. And the best is yet to come !
1986 ... which will remain as his most successful title and consequently, the best known. The title of the consecration. Finally !
1986 ... a nice foray into the Intimist which shows that she is not just a Dance singer. Beautiful versatility !
1988 ... back to pure dance. A title that will not remain as his most famous but hey, we will be satisfied ...
1990 ... a change of decade which will unfortunately rhyme with the end of the adventure. Adventure that was beautiful, anyway ...
