SOTW: Beggin' / Madcon

This little number, featuring a gorgeous sample from Frankie Vallie and The Four Seasons, I discovered while at happy hour with friends one night. I heard this fat beat and ear-catching crooning in the background and it distracted me from my drink until I had to ask, "What is this song????" Soo many years later and its still a stable in my happy/feel good and workout playlists.

Formed in 1992 by the duo Yosef Wolde-Mariam and Tshawe Baqwa, they hail from Norway. Yes, they're Norwegian!! and while this hot song didn't really chart in the US, it did reach #1 is France, Norway, Russia and Portugal and was #2 on the Billboard Hot 100. Just prime example to me that sometimes the US market is well behind!
