De La Soul – Me Myself and I


Me Myself and I” is a song by American hip hop trio De La Soul, released in April 1989 as a single from their debut studio album, 3 Feet High and Rising (1989). It was the group’s only number one on the US Billboard R&B chart. The song also topped the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart.

The song’s number one position in The Netherlands was spurred by the VPRO television station, who made a documentary about De La Soul after meeting them when they were still unknown.The record label Indisc acquired the local rights from Tommy Boy Records, and immediately seized the opportunity to release the song as a single. It ranked number 46 on VH1’s 100 Greatest Songs of Hip Hop.
