Throwback Thursday: Heavy D, Michael Jackson, Shakira, Cindy Lauper, and Rick James

DimiHub’s weekly Throwback Thursday. Enjoy the sounds of Heavy D, Michael Jackson, Shakira, Cindy Lauper, and Rick James.

Oooh it’s been a good week. We made it to Thursday and it’s time to jumpstart an early weekend. Drinking and taking it back is always a good mixture, and we intend to put you in a dancing mood with some of the classics. We want to set the stage with a little Heavy D. Check out his 1991 hit song that reached #11 on Billboard’s Hot 100, “Now That We Found Love”.

The immortal Michael Jackson finally makes his DimiHub Throwback Thursday debut. The greatest pop star in music history has a plethora of songs to pick from, but just to keep the good vibes and the dancing mood, we chose “Wanna Be Startin’ Something”. The track was part of the legendary Thriller album and was released in 1982. It also gave Jackson his fifth consecutive top 10 song on Billboard’s Hot 100. Here you are:

We also wanted to give the ladies a shoutout on this week’s playlist. Next up is Shakira. The Colombian star turned 39 this week (although you’d never guess by looking at her), and we decided to go with her most famous single, “Hips Don’t Lie” featuring Wyclef Jean. The 2006 track topped Billboard’s Hot 100.

To keep it going for the ladies who just want to have fun, we had to call our old friend Cindy Lauper. Lauper brought the girly anthem “Girls Just Want To Have Fun”. We also picked this for the guys because of Captain Lou Albano’s music video appearance (his the big dude in a tank top). The track reached #2 on Billboard’s Hot 100 throughout 1983 and 1984.

And last but certainly not least, we wrap up our throwback Thursday with the woman-loving legend Rick James. James’ “Superfreak” is considered by Rolling Stone Magazine to be #477 of the 500 greatest songs of all time. Listen to the 1981 single and dance the rest of the throwback thursday away!
