1993 all over again: 17 - Shara Nelson

17. Shara Nelson - Down That Road

Five Top 40 hits in her own right. How many can you name?

Not easy, is it? This was her first post-Massive Attack single, and sadly also the high-water mark of her solo career. To say she lost her way a bit is understatement on stilts - Pete Tong had to take out a restraining order things got so bad at one point - but it sounds like she's got things back together now; there's a new album due this year.
