Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It

Based on “He’s the Greatest Dancer” by Sister Sledge (1979).
Hit version by Will Smith (US #1/R&B #6/UK #3 1998).

From the wiki: “The song samples the Sister Sledge song ‘He’s the Greatest Dancer’ and ‘Movin’ On Up’ by Ja’net Dubois. The ‘mama-uh, mama-uh, mama come closer’ line is a reference to the song ‘Soul Makossa’ by Manu Dibango, specifically the version adapted by Michael Jackson in ‘Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin”’s final bridge.”
