Ok it’s been almost a month since the last classic Monday but it’s back. What better way to start your week than with a classic record!

This weeks track comes from Fat Joe featuring Ashanti with Whats Luv?. This reached The number 4 in the UK chart and at number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, it stayed there for 20 weeks back in 2002.

To this day, 12 years on this still sounds so big.

Another Monday, another classic track to start your week with. I’m still off travelling by the way, currently in Italy!

This weeks classic is from Cassidy with his 2003 hit Hotel. I remember downloading this track and burning it onto CD however I was really annoyed because the version I downloaded had the first beat of the intro cut off – that still bugs me to this day, life eh.

HELLO!

It’s me, Will. I’m currently somewhere around Europe with a big backpack on my back and I’m probably very tired but having an amazing time, either way it’s Monday and that means one thing – Classic Monday’s time!

Nelly’s Ride Wit Me has and always will be a summer classic, ever since its release back in April 2001.

Even if it’s raining where you are, this will bring the sun out.

Now THIS is what I call an R&B record. Next released Wifey on 16th May 2000, 12 years ago! Believe it or not this only reached number 56 in the US Billboard Top 100 – a crime in my opinion, this is such a big track, if only there was more R&B records like this around today.



CLASSIC MONDAY’S: LAURYN HILL – EVERYTHING IS EVERYTHING

This weeks Classic Monday’s record is from 1998, can you cast your minds back that far? I have no idea what I was doing but it was probably something involving a microphone, a karaoke machine and S Club 7.

1998 was also the year that Lauryn Hill released this insane record, Everything Is Everything – and this fully deserves the place as this weeks Classic Monday’s. Enjoy!



CLASSIC MONDAY’S: MARQUES HOUSTON FT. JERMAINE DUPRI – POP THAT BOOTY

Well for some reason this didn’t post up yesterday so make this a classic Monday on a Tuesday! This weeks Classic Monday’s comes from the year 2003. Marques Houston released this classic R&B club banger which features the odd word or two from Jermaine Dupri.

Pop That Booty made it to number 23 in the UK Charts and to this day I still love to play this out when I DJ, the girls seem to love it.

Where is Marques Houston these days?

Every Monday I post up a classic track as a blast from the past to kick start the week. Today I have a right old corker for you!

Eve, born Eve Jihan Jeffers was the Ruff Ryders first lady after joining the team in 1998, she was also the first female rapper to hit the Billboard Top 200 number 1 spot – not bad really!

This track, Who’s That Girl? was released back in 2001, it was taken from Eve’s second album Scorpion and is a summer SMASH.
