This song is highly derivative of the 1988 hit "It Takes Two
" by Rob Base & D.J. E-Z Rock. Both songs incorporate the same sample: "Think (About It)" by Lyn Collins, whose song tells us "It takes two to make a thing go right," and provides those distinctive bass notes. Sampling was still in the wild, so producers were cobbling together pieces of old songs to make their hits, and no one was bothering to clear the rights. If a hit song was based on an obscure sample, it was a good bet that someone else would find that sample and try to replicate the feat.
