Can you BELIEVE that on this day, MARCH 18th, 1996 Mark Morrison UNLEASHED ‘Return of the Mack’!!!!!
It was released in the United Kingdom in March 1996 and topped the UK Singles Chart a month later. It reached the #1 spot on the UK Singles Chart and #2 on the US Billboard Hot 100 in early-Summer 1997 for one week behind “MMMBop” by Hanson, and went Platinum! DAMN YOU Hanson for keeping him out the #1 SPOT you little DOUCHE BAGS…naw.. we like Hanson too…just not as much..LOL.
The song’s beat is sampled from the song “Genius of Love” by American band Tom Tom Club. “Games” by Chuckii Booker was also sampled.
22 years and when the song comes on it is STILL a BOP!!
