OLDIES SUNDAY: Louchie Lou X Michie One – Rich Girl (1993)


Make sure you’re working towards your finances when you hear today’s Oldies Sunday selection. Today, we take a trip to the UK to check out Louise Gold and Michelle Charles a.k.a. Ragga/Soul duo Louchie Lou and Michie One’sRich Girl“.

Released through Fashion Records in 1993 (originally 1992 with Sly & Mafia’s “Riot” on the B Side) on the “Fever Pitch Riddim“, “Rich Girl” was Louchie Lou and Michie One’s debut single. The track was inspired by the 1964 track “If I Were A Rich Man” from the “Fiddler On The Roof” Musical. The track found Louchie and Michie sharing lyrics about getting out of Poverty and what they’d do if they were wealthy, but also share that no matter how much money they’d have, they’d never change who they truly are, and money can’t buy love and happiness. “Rich Girl” helped to get Louchie Lou and Michie One’s name out there, but wasn’t an instant hit for them.

Since the release of “Rich Girl”, they duo went on to find chart success, and release albums until they disbanded in 2000. In 2004, American Pop star Gwen Stefani and American Rapper Eve sampled “Rich Girl” for their single, “Rich Girl“, which was produced by Dr. Dre. It went on to become a multiplatinum success.

OLDIES SUNDAY: Vybz Kartel X @Wayne_Marshall – New Millennium (2002)


It’s the first Oldies Sunday post for 2022! Happy New Year to all the regulars tuning in. For our first post, we go back to the early 2000s to check out a classic. Today’s selection comes from the “World BossVybz Kartel, and his track, “New Millennium“.

Produced by Donovan “Vendetta” Bennett a.k.a. Don Corleonie and Shiah Coore on the “Mad Ants Riddim“, this was released through Don Corleon Records in 2002. Featuring Dancehall Artist Wayne Marshall, Vybz Kartel displayed superb delivery and lyricism on “New Millennium”. He opened with the iconic line, “Inna mi Karl Kani, wid a bottle a tall Canei, tuff a life?”, and Wayne Marshall showed that he had a great career ahead of him when he delivered the hook/chorus. This great collaboration became an overnight hit for Vybz Kartel, a first in his career, and made way for his transition from upcoming Artist, to one of the greatest Dancehall Artists to ever do it. “New Millennium” was featured on Vybz Kartel’s 2003 debut album, “Up 2 Di Time“.

Since “New Millennium”, Vybz Kartel made more hits, got caught up in various controversies, held a #1 spot that became the envy of others, influenced many the world over in countless ways, and is a top name despite being currently incarcerated. No matter what, people will never forget “New Millennium” as it’s still a staple in many mixes, and Dancehall events 20 years later.
