The Fugees – Fu-Gee-La

“Fu-Gee-La” was the first single from the Fugees’ 1996 classic second album, The Score. The song was produced by Salaam Remi, contains a sample of “If Loving You Is Wrong, I Don’t Want To Be Right” by Ramsey Lewis, and its chorus is based on “Ooo La La La” by Teena Marie. Several remixes of the song, including the “Refugee Camp Remix” and the “Sly & Robbie Remix”, which features Young Akon, also appear on The Score. It is the highest-selling single from the Fugees, and has been certified gold by RIAA. This music video for Fu-Gee-La was filmed in Jamaica and follows a robbery-related concept, with each band member taking on a particular role. (4:07 min)

    great mix of hip hop with an islands vibe! A very important group which gave us a couple of future solo artists ….

    it occurs to me that the Fugees were likely a big influence on Subatomic Sound System which I have mentioned to you a couple times before…
