This song was first released in 1992 on a small Atlanta label owned by the producer Tony Mercedes, but when it started getting club play, it got picked up by Bellmark Records, a new label started by Al Bell, known for his work at the soul label Stax. Bellmark released the song in 1993, and the song was hit that summer, going to #12 in America in July. It eventually sold over 2 million copies.
Bellmark had one more hit before they folded: "Whoomp! There It Is
" by Tag Team.
