"Juicy" sampled by Notorious B.I.G.
classic R&B

"Juicy Fruit" is a song written by James Mtume and released as the lead-off single from Mtume's third album, also titled Juicy Fruit. It features lead vocals by Tawatha Agee. The mid-tempo song is arguably Mtume's most well-known, proving enormously successful on R&B radio stations when first released.

The song reached number one on the Billboard Hot Black Singles chart on June 4, 1983 and remained there for eight weeks. Its success on the Billboard Pop Singles chart, however, was more modest, reaching number 45.[3] It was ranked at number 15 among the "Tracks of the Year" for 1983 by NME.[4] Though it never reached the Top 40, the single was certified as selling one million copies on July 25, 1983[citation needed]. The song's video had different lyrics, where they replaced "You can lick me everywhere" with "Candy kisses everywhere".

The single itself would become the inspiration for another act that would take the name from the song, Juicy,[citation needed] whose single "Sugar Free" was considered an answer to "Juicy Fruit"[citation needed] and itself the basis for being used as sampled backgrounds on numerous songs.

Vinyl LP pressing. 2020 release. Norah Jones' seventh solo studio album Pick Me Up Off The Floor features collaborators from Brian Blade to Jeff Tweedy, and grew out of her acclaimed singles series of the past two years as the songs she hadn't yet released unexpectedly congealed into an album of tremendous depth and beauty connected by the sly groove of her piano trios, lyrics that confront loss and portend hope, and a mood that leans into darkness before ultimately finding the light.

On the longtime Parisian hip-hop producer Onra's new album, Fundamentals, he locks into an easy groove front to back, even when the compositions are dizzyingly diffuse. But while his dream of the '90s is frequently beautiful and wholly sincere, it's also increasingly creepy.

Funkentelechy vs. the Placebo Syndrome is a funk album by Parliament, released in 1977 (see 1977 in music).

It is a loose concept album warning the listener of falling into the "Placebo Syndrome," which according to George Clinton is consumerism, and listening to disco music, which he saw as a simplification of funk music in attempt to gain commercial success. The album spawned the R&B number #1 single in "Flash Light", which features a funky synthesizer bass line played on a Minimoog by keyboardist Bernie Worrell. The album became Parliament's fourth consecutive gold album and second platinum album. The song "Sir Nose d'Voidoffunk (Pay Attention – B3M)" contains nursery rhymes "Baa, Baa, Black Sheep" and "Three Blind Mice"; the lyrics were changed to make reference to drug use.

The original vinyl release contained a 22" by 33" inch poster of the character "Sir Nose D'Voidoffunk", as well as an 8-page comic book that explains the concept behind the LP. Both the poster and the comic book were illustrated by Overton Loyd.

Ricky Martin - Livin' La Vida Loca (VINTAGE)

Regular price $ 10.00

"Livin' la Vida Loca" is a song performed by Ricky Martin. It was released on March 23, 1999, from Martin's self-titled debut English-language album (he had previously released several albums in Spanish). The song was composed by Desmond Child and Draco Rosa. La vida loca is Spanish for "the crazy life."

"Livin' la Vida Loca" is generally seen as the song that began the Latin pop explosion that followed and made the transition of other Spanish-speaking artists (first Enrique Iglesias and Marc Anthony and later Shakira, Paulina Rubio and Thalía) into the English-speaking market easier. Before this time, most non-Latino Americans had never heard of Martin until what CNN reported was a show-stopping performance of "La Copa de la Vida" at the 41st Grammy Awards show, which became a catalyst in bringing Latin pop to the forefront of the U.S. music scene.[1] "Livin' la Vida Loca" sold over 8 million copies, making it one of the best selling singles of all time.

The song received various Grammy Awards nominations and Ricky Martin obtained enormous success inside the United States and worldwide. In 2007, the song was ranked at number 28 on the list of 100 Greatest Songs of the 90s by VH1.[2] It is Martin's signature song.[citation needed]

Martin performed the song on second series of The Voice Australia with fellow judges Delta Goodrem, Joel Madden and Seal.
