These Hits Just Turn 20 Years Old in 2018!

It may be hard to believe, but ringing in 2018 means that it’s been TWENTY years since some of our favorite songs hit the radio. Remember getting down to these songs?

‘Nobody’s Supposed to be Here’ by Deborah Cox

Though first released as a slow jam about love and heartbreak, the dance remix of ‘Nobody’s Supposed to be Here’ had people out of their seats from the first note.

‘Believe’ by Cher
After three decades of singing, Cher was an expert hit-maker by the time she released ‘Believe’, which was all about empowering people to overcome heartbreak. This Zumba® crew looks pretty empowered to us!

‘Still Not a Player’ by Big Pun

Big Pun made his mark as the first Latino rapper to go platinum, and he was well respected among artists for the complexity of his lyrics and his technical expertise as a rapper.

‘Ray of Light’ by Madonna

After 15 years of making music, ‘Ray of Light’ was a departure from Madonna’s usual sound. Nothing says 1998 more than this video of Madonna’s first live performance of the song on the Oprah Winfrey show!

‘No, No, No’ by Destiny’s Child

Before Beyonce was Queen B, she was making adorable songs with Destiny’s Child. With some help from Wyclef Jean, ‘No, No, No’ went platinum in February of 1998. Check out this crew of mini-dancers killin’ it for some inspiration!
