  • Tania from Brisbane, AustraliaI remember reading an interview with Salt-N-Pepa a while back and a club DJ had flipped the “Tramp” single over and lined up “Push It” in error, but managed to work it in, and people crammed the dance floor. He kept getting requests for it, and soon there were plenty of clubs doing the same. Meanwhile, Salt-N-Pepa were in Europe touring (somewhere in Germany I believe), when they got a call from someone in management Stateside telling them they needed to add “Push It” to their set list because it was getting major club play. They were like “WTF”, and didn’t really want to add it, but Herby insisted. The rest is history!
