Let’s take a trip on memory lane to the late 90s. So many great hits were released during that time, including this week’s Throwback Thursday jam “So into You” by Grammy Award-winning singer Tamia.
Released in 1998, “So into You,” served as Tamia’s second single from her self-titled debut album. The song, produced by Tim and Bob, sampled The Commodores’ 1978 tune “Say Yeah.”
“So Into You” did exceptionally well on the charts. In fact, it was Tamia’s most successful single from her debut album. The song spent 28 weeks on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, peaking at #7. Furthermore, it remained on Billboard’s Hot 100 for 20 weeks, spiking to the #30 position on the chart.
Five years later, “So Into You” crossed over to the hip-hop market. In 2003, rapper Fabolous sampled the beat and the chorus to Tamia’s 1998 hit on his song “Into You,” which featured Ashanti.
Here’s a throwback clip of Tamia’s 1998 performance of “So Into You” on Motown Live.
