The 100 Best Hip-Hop One-Hit Wonders

97. Quo "Blowin' Up (Don't Stop the Music)" (1994)

Producer: Teddy Riley
Album: Quo
Label: Epic Records


Looking to capitalize on the influx of kiddie rap groups like Kriss Kross, Michael Jackson signed Wade Robson and DeWayne Turrentine to MJJ Music, and released their debut single "Blowin' Up (Don't Stop The Music)" in 1994. The video for the single was, in short, rather hilarious. Nose rings. Mean mugs. Underage kids dancing with girls. Oh my. It's no wonder the group never popped off. Turrentine would go on to marry Reagan Gomez-Preston and Robinson would become an in-demand choreographer (who allegedly got with Britney Spears while she was dating Justin Timberlake, inspiring "Cry Me A River"). Hey, who says there isn't life after hip-hop.
