There are so many songs that are out there everywhere then all of a sudden they disappear and you only hear from them on cheesy countdowns run by music channels over Christmas if you are lucky.
So roll up and welcome to Forgotten Songs where we celebrate these forgotten wonders.
Rock Ya Body (Mic Check 1,2) – MVP featuring Stagga Lee
Everyone likes a good dance track with a catchy beat and with a good rhythm to dance to. Well, back in 2005 MVP released a really catchy track. Rock Ya Body (Mic Check 1,2) was the debut single by hip hop group MVP. The track featured the rapper Stagga Lee and it was written by Robert Clivittes, Eric Newman, Maximo Perez and Victor Matos. It was released under the record labels Positiva and EMI.
The song was apparently to date the most popular single by group. The single went in at number 5 in the UK charts and also hit the top twenty of the charts in other countries including Belgium (no.5), Hungary (no.3) Ireland (no.6) and the Netherlands (no.15).
I don’t remember this song being released as an ‘official’ single but I do remember it as it was on a compilation CD I had. It was catchy and had a good dance beat to it.
