Debbie Jacobs (born Debbie Jacobs-Rock in Baltimore, Maryland) is a female R&B\dance singer that started her career in the late '70s, but gained success in the early '80s. She is considered a classic disco diva throughout the U.S. and Europe.
Like most singers, Debbie started out singing in church. In 1979, she released her debut album, "Undercover Lover" which peaked at #153 on the Billboard 200 chart.
The first single from the album, "Don't You Want My Love" peaked at #106 on Billboard's Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart and #66 on Billboard's Hot Soul Singles chart, staying on the chart for 7 weeks.
The title song managed to peak at #6 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music\Club Play chart along with the rest of the songs from the LP. Debbie was one of the few singers at that time to have four singles released off the LP to become successful.
In 1980, Debbie released her second album, "High On Your Love" which peaked at #178 on the Billboard 200 chart.
The title song became a hit for Debbie, peaking at #79 on the Billboard Hot 100 and topped Billboard's Hot Dance Music\Club Play chart for a week in March of 1980.
