Saturday Slingback: #SaltNPepa 'Shoop' [vid]

ON THIS DAY....In 1993, Salt N Pepa and Spinderella release 'SHOOP'!!!

"Shoop" is the lead single released from Salt-N-Pepa's fourth studio album, Very Necessary. It was produced by Mark Sparks and group member Salt. The song features an uncredited verse by rapper Big Twan.

Released late in 1993, the song became one of the group's most successful singles, reaching number four on the Billboard Hot 100 and topping the Hot Rap Singles chart at number one (their second single to do so). Two months after its release, "Shoop" was certified gold by the RIAA; it went on to sell 800,000 copies. The success of both this single and the follow-up single, "Whatta Man" propelled Very Necessary to sell over five million copies in the US, becoming the group's best-selling album.

This song uses a sample of the Ike Turner-penned "I'm Blue (The Gong-Gong Song)" by The Ikettes.

The line "the voodoo that you do so well" was quoted from Cole Porter's 1929 song "You Do Something to Me".

The song was used in the 2016 superhero film Deadpool, as well as in the film's trailer. The VIDEO for the song was SAUCY showing off all the ladies SEXY and PLAYFUL sides!  REVISIT this CLASSIC after the JUMP!
