25 Hip-Hop Artists People Think Are One-Hit Wonders (But Totally Aren't)

15. Wreckx-n-Effect

Major Hit: "Rump Shaker" (1992)

Other Hit: "New Jack Swing" f/ Teddy Riley (1989)


Wreckz-N-Effect had a No. 1 on the Billboard Rap charts in 1990 with "New Jack Swing," but it's really "Rump Shaker," from their album Hard or Smooth that most people remember. In '92, the song hit No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, but got cock-blocked by Whitney Houston, whose tune "I Will Always Love You," wouldn't budge from the top slot.

Still, "Rump Shaker" went double platinum as a single and gave future Neptunes hitmaker Pharrell his first taste of success. P wrote Teddy Riley's verses, though it's not clear who came up with the line, "All I wanna do is zooma-zoom-zoom-zoom in a boom-boom."
