I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

THROW BACK VIDEO: NO DIGGITY BY BLACKSTREET


"No Diggity" is a song by American R&B group Blackstreet featuring Dr. Dre and Queen Pen. The song peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and in New Zealand, and number nine in the United Kingdom. "No Diggity" ended "Macarena"'s 14-week reign atop the US Billboard Charts. It ranked at number 91 on Rolling Stone and MTV: 100 Greatest Pop Songs. It sold 1.6 million copies in 1996, and won the 1998 Grammy Award for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals and was nominated forGrammy Award for Best R&B Song. It ranked at #32 on VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of the '90s.

Between Blackstreet's sung verses are rap verses performed by Dre, Teddy Riley and Queen Pen. Despite the fact that some of Dr. Dre & Queen Pen's lyrics are censored, there are no "dirty" versions of the song. Also, there is a radio version that excludes both rappers and features Blackstreet only, tailor made for airplay on Top 40 Pop and Adult R&B stations.

The song's musical backing track is an altered sample from the beginning of "Grandma's Hands" by R&B hitmaker Bill Withers.
In the United Kingdom, the song climbed back into the top forty of the UK Singles Chart in March 2013, peaking at number thirty eight 16 years after its original release there.
