Mambo No. 5
“Mambo No. 5” is a mambo and jive dance song originally recorded and composed by Pérez Prado in 1949.
The song’s popularity was renewed by Lou Bega’s sampling of the original, released under the same name on Bega’s debut album A Little Bit of Mambo. It has since been renewed more recently by Alesha Dixon’s sampling of the tune.3 Comments
