Rump Shaker by Wreckx-N-Effect
Dancing is all about shaking your rump and Wreckx-N-Effect perfected the equation with their song Rump Shaker. I find myself trying to sing this song (and no I don’t know the lyrics) but I always end up just closing my mouth and dancing really hard. And how could you not?
