4Ever Songs: Modjo ‘Lady’

You might not recognize it by name alone. But the now-classic surging melody, funky bassline and roll-off-the-tongue chorus of “Lady (Hear Me Tonight),” the 2001 hit from French dance-pop duo Modjo, made the song one of the most iconic club anthems of its time, topping the Dance Club Songs chart and breaking the Billboard Hot 100

Modjo unveiled their 12-track, self-titled debut album just months later, including an acoustic version of “Lady,” along with the duo’s two follow-up singles — the disco-tinged “Chillin,'” which hit No. 12 on the U.K. Singles Chart, and the strummer “What I Mean,” which peaked at No. 59.
