The Stoop is the 2008 studio debut album released by duo Little Jackie on the S-Curve label. The album produced a single hit, "The World Should Revolve Around Me", which reached #92 on the Pop 100 Billboard chart and peaked at #14 on the UK Singles Chart. The album itself did not fare as well on the UK Albums Chart, where it peaked at #138.
The album has been very well-received by critics.
The New York Times praised the songwriting as "modern and quick-tongued" with "insouciant, articulate takes on relationships in various stages of disaster".
Associated Press indicated that the music was "contemporary and classic", with a "funky Motown vibe mixed with hip-hop beats".
Billboard called the album an excellent debut and said Coppola's fans would be pleased by the "bubbly blend of swinging hip-hop rhythms, bright R&B horns and sassy soul-siren vocals."
Salon said that the album provided "a perfect soundtrack for a lazy summer day" and that Coppola has a "knack for satire."
Blues & Soul spoke about the music having "A bittersweet musical vibe that combines a respectful nod to the soulful Motown rhythms of the past with a sneer to the many social and cultural issues that consume today's public."
Pallin indicated that the song "28 Butts", about a woman wasting her life, was pivotal to the album with respect to its vibe, which helped set the tone for the rest. Coppola says that in terms of the lyrics she had to tone herself down, as she was "going through a little angry phase, getting in touch with my inner whore." But though the material may be angry, Billboard noted that "attacks on brain-dead celebutantes and deadbeat boyfriends rarely feel like this much fun."
The World Should Revolve Around Me was the first single and video off the album. According to Coppola, the song, which was inspired by a break-up, talks about people's need for space, reflecting the kind of thing that people say when they're angry that they might later regret.
The lyrics to "Cryin' for the Queen" are a diatribe launched against chemically impaired foreign performers that appears to be directed specifically at Amy Winehouse.
Salon singled out two other songs for comment, noting that in "Go Hard or Go Home" Coppola talked about deep family scars without self pity and that the title track of the album captures both the "comforts and craziness of home" even for those who might not "have a Brooklyn stoop to sit on."
The song "The Stoop" appears in the 2009 movie The Final Destination, an episode of 90210 (TV show) and in New York Goes To Hollywood when Little Jackie asked for Tiffany Pollard's help (New York) to record backing vocals.The song "28 Butts" appears in a season 4 episode of Criminal Minds (titled '52 Pickup').

ittle Jackie is an American band consisting of Imani Coppola and Adam Pallin. Little Jackie, which derives its name from the 1989 hit song "Little Jackie Wants to Be a Star" by Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam, released a hit single in 2008 called "The World Should Revolve Around Me" from their debut album The Stoop.
Coppola was a solo singer, whose most successful single was "Legend of a Cowgirl", from the 1997 album Chupacabra. Adam Pallin is the programmer/producer of the duo.
In 2008, Coppola and Pallin signed a contract with S-Curve, an independent label owned by Steve Greenberg, to issue an album. This coincided with the duo's television debut on Late Night with Conan O'Brien. Album promotion is by Nabbr, a company that has created viral video campaigns for Justin Timberlake and Amy Winehouse. Coppola, originally signed as a solo act with Columbia Records, plans to approach the music business differently with Little Jackie, bolstered by her experiences. She also sees Little Jackie as an opportunity to get back into pop.
On August 3, 2011 Little Jackie digitally released their sophomore album, Made 4 TV, on Bandcamp.com, a site that allows artists release their music and merch directly to their fans.
