Hugh Reviews No Diggity

When I was a teenager I hated r’n’b. Hated it with great fervour, I did. Then, one day, I saw No Diggity on Video Hits.

It was slick. It had a wicked little piano sub-riff.

It had marionettes.

I still hated r’n’b, but I loved that song. I still love that song. And I’m far from the only one, No Diggity is no longer a song, it’s an institution. Some of my friends had never heard of this song. No one knows where the bodies are buried. Over the last few years I’ve heard some pretty sweet cover versions, below are 3. Each brings a distinct new character to the mix, while preserving what was great about the original. And also, the original, because why not?
