Throwback Thursday: 1994 (2 Weeks at #1)

No songs spent 2 weeks at #1 in 1995!

Ini Kamoze - Here Comes the Hotstepper (12/17-12/24)

So this song making it to #1 for 2 weeks in DECEMBER is kind of mind-blowing for me. It's not all that uncommon for songs with a reggae vibe to them to make it to the top in the summer, but I guess this one got in there when people were longing for the beach. It features an interpolation of "Land of 1000 Dances" (a song by Wilson Pickett that peaked at #30 in 1965) which is pretty cool, too.
