A Little Bit of Mambo
Its One Hit Wonder Wednesday! Today’s choice had one big smash hit in 1999 when he brought mambo back to mainstream.
Lou Bega’s “Mambo #5” reached number 1 in eleven major countries and number 3 in the US. This catchy little number had everyone dancing and don’t lie… you knew all the words! His album “A Little Bit of Mambo” peaked at number 1 in the Canada but only hit number 3 in the US.
Lou Bega is a native of Germany and continues his career some what “successfully” overseas. He just released a new record entitled “Free Again” which hasn’t seen any charts expect its 73rd spot in Germany. The newest single “Sweet Like Cola” has a cute music video but the song leaves something to be desired.
Where did you hear Mambo #5 for the first time?
