This sparkly slow jam literally starts in the club: It's late and Amerie is ready to call it a night. But then she spots club-weary crooner Trey Songz, who offers the leggy songbird his immodest lullaby: "Rockabye baby when the beat drop/ don't let your friends know we about to creep off." When that beat drops and desire goes boom, Amerie and Trey soar, showing that like Donnie Hathaway and Roberta Flack before them, the pair have some serious harmony.

    “Whoomp! (There It Is)”

    Tag Team | 1993

    Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
