"Bump n' Grind" is a song written, produced
and performed by R&B musician R. Kelly.
It was the second single released from his first solo album 12 Play in 1994.
The track became a number one single on the U.S. Billboard Hot
100 (temporarily interrupting the six-week run of Ace of Base's
"The Sign"), and it also spent twelve
weeks at number one on the U.S. Hot R&B
Songs chart as the singer's third #1 R&B hit, becoming the
longest-running number-one U.S. R&B single at that time. The song also
reached number eight in the UK charts, following the massive success of his previous
single, "She's Got That Vibe" (which was actually a re-release).
released 3 versions of "Bump n' Grind", the original album version
and two remixes.
The original LP version was made available for airplay on urban and Top 40 pop radio
stations alike at first, but eventually the Old School remix was issued shortly
and gained massive airplay on urban, adult R&B/Soul andrhythmic radio stations. Kelly also
released the "Bump N Grind (How I Feel It Extended Mix)", which was
used in the original video for the song. This version received major play on
urban radio as well. Some stations still play the original version to this day.

Paddle and The Wackness,
