If I ever meet Missy, I might just bow down and kiss her hand. Her reign was too real. And Timbaland?! Like, what was in the Virginia water that had all these monsters coming out of there? Seriously, mad hit makers hail from that Southern state.
This song is giving me goosebumps and the video…ugh…the video. Hype Williams is the Music Video Master!
Oh man. This song was everything. I remember as a kid thinking this video was so racy but super rad because they were the dominant types and the men were the strippers.

I’m twerking in my chair to this song as I’m blogging it. Although, my version of twerking-in-chair is more like just shaking around in no particular rhythm or style.
Whoa. This video brings back some great memories. Up until that point in my youth, I hadn’t heard or seen anything like this before. If you haven’t seen the video I strongly advise it…like now.
In general, Jamiroquai’s music was entirely WAY ahead of its time.
Jamiroquai are a British acid jazz band that formed in 1992 and lead by singer Jay Kay (aka as “The Mad Hatter” for his lively choices in headgear). They were the most prominent piece in the early-1990s London-based acid jazz movement…
Jay Kay of Jamiroquai
Their name is a blend of of “jam session” and “iroquai”, based on the Iroquois, the Native American tribe. Pretty creative!
Jamiroquai’s best known track is “Virtual Insanity”, which won four awards at the 1997 MTV Video Music Awards. They have sold more than 40 million albums worldwide and won a Grammy Award in 1998. Oh snap.
Check this video and check their entire catalog if you have the time! The music they were making 20 years ago is what some artists are trying to sound like today.
This was the jam. The beat and Teedra’s voice were melodic medicine! Get into this…
Thanks to reader, Robin, for sending this link. I couldn’t find it for so long and I do prefer this version better!
3LW pulled onto the scene in the year 2000. During their 8 year music reign, they dropped some epic hits for being just “3 Little Women”.
“Now you flipped the script, playa’ please.”
From time to time I stumble upon this video and giggle to myself. In 2007, Nike asked me to participate in this fun project called NIKE TECH PACK. They interviewed all sorts of people from around the world, including dreamboat PAUL â€œP RODâ€ RODRIGUEZ. Anyways, this was my first on-camera interview and I’d like to think I’ve come a long way when it comes to on-camera appearances…um…um…um.
Practice makes perfect.
