"Move Ya Body" is the debut single from Nina Sky's debut album Nina Sky, which was released in 2004. The song features rapper Jabba. There is a remix to the song with Jamaican deejay Vybz Kartel. The song ranked at #250 on Blender's 500 Greatest Songs Since You Were Born.[1]


Song information

The song "Move Ya Body" was spawned and advertised as a summer dance hit. The song itself is Nicole and Natalie in a club, singing "move your body, girl". The song's context was proven odd, but was meant as a positive "Go get him girl!" message.

The song uses the Coolie Dance riddim and contains a sample of the Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam song titled "Can You Feel The Beat."

Even though the song did not reach #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, it is often regarded as a one hit wonder because it was extremely popular, however, no more hits spawned from Nina Sky after this, as this is their only truly successful single on the Billboard Charts and US radio to date.

The song was also featured in the movie Coach Carter, but does not appear on the soundtrack. It was also featured in an episode of House in the season 7 episode After Hours in the scene where Dr. Foreman and Dr. Taub are in the gentlemen's club.

Chart performance

The song charted at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #22 on the 2004 Billboard Year-End Chart. It also reached #6 on the UK Singles Chart. It was certified Gold by the RIAA in early 2005
