January 21, 2020

They came, they conquered and we never heard from them again. After reaching the Billboard Hot 100’s Top 10 with their very first single, here are the biggest one hit wonders of the decade.

1. Mims: This Is Why I’m Hot

All of New York was singing along to Mims “This Is Why I’m Hot,” when the song peaked at No. 1 in 2007.



2. Huey: Pop, Lock, And Drop It

“Pop, Lock and Drop It,” had all the ingredients to be a hit, a simple hook and a dance that everyone could do. Huey’s only single lasted 23 weeks on the Billboard charts in 2007.

3. D4L: Laffy Taffy

Atlanta’s D4L hit a sweet spot with “Laffy Taffy” in January 2006, when the song peaked at No. 1.



4. City High: What Would You Do?

Although most one hit wonders consist of club hits and dance songs, once in awhile you’ll hear a really meaningful song that became a hit for a reason.

5. Jibbs: Chain Hang Low

Jibbs made nursery rhymes are very catchy with this hit single “Chain Hang Low.” Chain Hang Low peaked at #7 on the Hot 100 chart.



6. Nivea: Don’t Mess with My Man

7. Lumidee: Never Leave You (Uh Oh)

Even though this song came out 17 years ago, we will run to the dance floor with Lumidee’s “Never Leave You” hit. This jam peaked at #3 on the Hot 100 chart in 2003.



8. Kevin Lyttle: Turn Me On
