I had to do it! Anytime, a song gets sampled or covered, I feel it is my duty to remind everyone of the original.

The most recent example, Acraze feat. Cherish with "Do It To It". This song released in August of 2021 is a 'house' version of the original 2006 hit from sister group, Cherish.

Cherish is an R&B girl group made up of twin sisters Felisha and Fallon King, along with their two older sisters, Farrah and Neosha King. Farrah and Neosha left the group in 2008.

"Do It To It" by Cherish was released in May of 2006 and was on their debut album entitled, Unappreciated.

This song came out when there was a string of songs that came with a dance. It was TikTok before TikTok. Besides "Do It To It" there was "Lean Wit It Rock Wit It" by Dem Frenchize Boyz and the  "Chicken Noodle Soup" in 2006. Then in 2007, we got the heavy hitters like "The Cupid Shuffle" by Cupid and "Crank That" by Soulja Boy.

According to Wikipedia, "The song peaked at number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 in its fifteenth week of release. It also reached number 15 on the Billboard Hot Digital Songs chart and number 8 on the Hot 100 Airplay chart. It had strong video play on BET and reached number 2 on 106 & Park. The song played for the limit of 65 days on the countdown and was eventually retired. It was the only video to be retired that year that did not reach number one."

The Acraze version of "Do It To It" reached number three on Billboard Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart.

Felisha and Fallon produce and write for other artists such as Tamar Braxton, Sevyn Streeter, and Jacob Latimore.

In 2021, Felisha and Fallon, were featured on BET Presents: The Encore. The Encore was about nine former girl group members living together in a house and tasked with making an album in 30 days. Besides Felisha and Fallon, the rest of the cast was made up of Shamari Devoe from Blaque702 sisters Irish and LeMisha Grinstead, Nivea, Pamela Long of TotalAubrey O'Day from Danity Kane, and Kiely Williams of 3LW & The Cheetah Girls.

Spoiler alert: all nine girls did not last the whole 30 days. I loved it!
