Child has an interesting backstory, as her parents were both classical musicians. She grew up in Toronto, but wrote "Don't Wanna Fall in Love" in New York, which is why the video was shot there. While she is an official one hit wonder, her single "Welcome to the Real World" peaked at #49.
After her follow up album, 1993's Here Not There was a commercial disappointment, Child dropped out of the limelight, and became a session musician. Child eventually released her third album Surge, in 2002.
