The Flashback Fridays #2 For 9/30/16: Blackstreet ft. Dr Dre - No Diggity (1996)
Today is the 20th anniversary of this song dropping, on this day.
And while it may annoyingly be used today in the background of commercials as another tired opportunity to make "white people look hilarious while awkwardly dancing to black music," the greatness of the Teddy Riley, William "Skylz" Stewart produced classic will never go away.
With the Hype Williams video adding to its greatness, "No Diggity" served as Blackstreet's sole #1 Billboard 100 hit and was a major international success. Just on it alone, it sold 1.6 million copies and even had a random re-appearence on the UK Top 40 charts in March 2013. Maybe an even more important fact for "No Diggity's" success is that it ended Macareña's long running domination at the top of the Billboard charts.
Your second Flashback Friday choice today, it's Blackstreet and Dr. Dre with "No Diggity."
