Mambo No. 5 (A Little Bit Of…) – Lou Bega (1999)
Born David Lubega, this German singer/musician debuted with this remake of Perez Prado’s 1949 song. While he’s continued to record and perform over the years, Bega hasn’t been able to match the success of this worldwide hit. He’s lent his voice, both in song and spoken word, to various television shows and video games, primarily in his native Germany. Bega’s lastest release, a collection of 80’s covers, is set to be released next month in Europe.
