Le Juan Love


Le Juan Love (born Le Juan Biggers in Newport News, Virginia) was a young male hip-hop/rapper from the late '80s. He was signed to 2 Live Crew member Luther Campbell's label, Luke Skyywalker Records.
In 1988, Le Juan released his first album "I Still Feel Good" which peaked at #59 on Billboard's R&B Albums chart.
The first single "Everybody Say Yeah" peaked at #78 on Billboard's Hot Black Singles chart, staying on the chart for 6 weeks. The song sampled Stevie Wonder's hit song "Fingertips (Part 2)."
The follow-up singles "Jockin' Robin" (which sampled Michael Jackson's song "Rockin' Robin") and "Please Stay" didn't appear to make the charts at all.

In 1990, Le Juan appeared on Luke and the 2 Live Crew's album "Banned in the USA" on the track "This Is To Luke From the Posse."

After that, it seems as if he has faded into obscurity. Nothing much has been heard from Le Juan lately.
