This was Mario's debut single, released via J Records in 2002. It sampled Biz Markie's "Just a Friend." It peaked at #4 on the Hot 100, #6 at CHR/Pop, #8 at rhythmic and #4 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles chart. I liked this at the time, but I don't listen to it now.
I still play this song. I can’t believe this song is 20 years old but it still sounds like it was released yesterday. Hot 92.3, Power 106 and the defunct 100.3 The Beat in Los Angeles. I was 8 years old when this song was released in the spring/summer of 2002.

I remember this one on the radio on B96 and probably WGCI when I was younger. In addition to the Biz Markie sample, it also sorta samples the handclaps from the 80s Run DMC rap track "Sucker MC's. Decent track.
