Ringtones sold: Three million
Produced by: Cory Way & K-Rab
Complex says: Built around a sample of New Edition's "Candy Girl," "Laffy Taffy" catapulted to the top of the Billboard 100 at the perfect time: just as the ringtone market was starting to take off and a flood of one-hit wonders was around the corner. That's probably why it's one of the most successful ringtones ever. Although they were never able to recapture the success of "Laffy Taffy," D4L's Shawty Lo (who was actually locked up at the time of "Laffy Taffy") went on to have a ringtone hit of his own with "Dey Know," as well as a respectable movement on the streets, and released his well-received solo debut, Units in the City, soon after.
