Wreckx-N-Effect from the United States released the song “Rump Shaker.”
It was the first single off their second album, Hard or Smooth, and was released in August 1992.
Teddy Riley, brother of Wreckx member Markell Riley, contributed production and guest vocals to the track.
The song only made it to No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks charts because of Whitney Houston’s tremendous success with her rendition of “I Will Always Love You.”
Despite this, the song reached No. 1 on the Hot Rap Singles chart and No. 9 on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart.
Although the song’s writers are not credited, the chorus of M.I.A.’s 2008 single “Paper Planes” was widely assumed to be based on the chorus.
