maxresdefault“Here Comes the Hotstepper” is a song co-written and recorded by Jamaican dancehall artist Ini Kamoze. It was released as the lead single from his 1994 album Here Comes the Hotstepper.

The song was Kamoze’s only song to reach the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States, reaching the number one position on December 17, 1994 and remaining there for two weeks; it was also a number one hit in Denmark and New Zealand, and a top ten hit in twelve other countries.


“Here Comes the Hotstepper” contains several samples, including vocals from “The Champ” by The Mohawks, “Hot Pants” by Bobby Byrd, and “La Di Da Di” by Doug E. Fresh and Slick Rick. The song’s instrumental samples the drums and bass from “Heartbeat” by Taana Gardner and guitar notes from “Hung Up on My Baby” by Isaac Hayes. The song uses the “na na na na na…” chorus from the Cannibal & the Headhunters cover of “Land of a Thousand Dances,” and the verse vocal melody is reminiscent of The Beatles’ “Come Together”.
