Under-rated?

What songs should've been hits or should be revisited?

I don't know how that song didn't blow up! Written well and catchy. Coll video and sexy. Fit right in with radio at the time when janet "All For You" and other jams were blowing up like Brandy, Aaliyah and Destiny's Child. From the looks of it. The song went #1 in the UK but only 12 here.



Currently i'm not sure how Iggy Izelia's "Mo Bounce" didnt go anywhere...47 Million views, expensive video, good beat. Also got good reviews.

Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy

Morphine

was never a single, so it couldn't have been a hit. I've never heard it on the radio either.

This was a b-side on a 12" single, and maxi singles were not counted on the Hot 100. It was not on the 45 to Angel, only the 12". There was a separate dance music chart that tracked maxi singles. It did get a lot of radio airplay though and there was a music video that was shown.

Talking about some #102 on the pop chart. Hell nah. I think it was top #20 on the r&b charts though. No video at the time didnt help.

Yeah I know but I mean we're talking about a legend, with his track record, putting out a track like this?

It should been all over lame-ole pop radio.
