Throwback Thursday ‘Never Leave You (Uh Oooh, Uh Oooh)’ by Lumidee (2003)
Think back to the Summer of 2003. I bet this song comes to mind!
"Never Leave You (Uh Oooh, Uh Oooh)" was the first single from Lumidee. It was off of her first studio album, Almost Famous. Lumidee was only 19 when this song made her actually famous.
According to Wikipedia, "'Never Leave You (Uh Ooh, Uh Ooh)' debuted at number sixty-one on the Billboard Hot 100. Due to the increase of radio plays for the song, it later ascended up the chart from number ten to number five, before peaking at number three on the Billboard Hot 100."
Some of the song's success was due to the popularity of reggae beats at the time, especially the Diwali riddim. Diwali could be heard at the time in songs by Wayne Wonder and Sean Paul.
The remix of "Never Leave You" features Busta Rhymes and Fabolous.
Lumidee is from East Harlem, NY and used her surroundings as inspiration for her music.
Since 2003 she released another studio album and many mixtapes. She now has her own record label called Logy Music Entertainment.
