No Diggity
Blackstreet Lyrics


No, no, no diggity
This is the remix remat
Brought you by Blackstreet
No diggity no doubt (one, one, one, two no diggity)
Play on, playa
She was a gold digger (no diggity, ayo, ayo, ayo, ayo)
Yo, Dre drop the verse (no, no, no)

She was more like a beauty queen from a movie scene
Said 'I don't mind but what do you mean I am the one
Who will dance on the floor, in around?" (no, no, no diggity)
She said I am the one
Who will dance
On the floor in around (no, no, no diggity)

She told me her name was Billie Jean as she caused a scene
Then every head turned with eyes that dreamed of bein' the one (no diggity)
Who will dance, on the floor, in around, babe (no, no, no diggity)

People always told me, "be careful what you do
Don't go around breakin young girls' hearts"
And mama always told me, "be careful who you love
Be careful what you do, because a lie become the truth, eh"

Billie Jean is not my lover, oh
She's just a girl who claims that I am the one
But the kid is not my son (no diggity, no doubt about it)
She said I am the one (gold digger, gold digger)
But the kid is not my son (I like the way you try to get slick no, no, no, no diggity)

For forty days and for forty nights I was on the scene
But who could stand when she's in demand her schemes and blames
Gonna dance, on a floor, in around (no, no, no diggity)
So take my strong advice
Just remember to always think twice (no)
Don't think twice

She told my baby imagined free and she looked at me (ah, ha)
And showed a photo of a baby cry his eyes were like mine
So we danced, on a floor, in around, baby (no, no, no diggity, no diggity)
The bridge
People always told me, "be careful what you do
Don't go around brakin' young girls' hearts"
But she she came and stood right by me and I smelled her sweet perfume (hehehe)
It happened much too soon
She called me to the room, hey yeah (no, no, no)

Billie Jean is not my lover
She's just a girl who claims that I am the one (gold digger, gold digger)
But the kid is not my son (I like the way you try to get slick no, no, no, no diggity)
The kid is not my son
She said I am the one (gold digger, gold digger)
But the kid is not my son (I like the way you try to get slick no, no, no, no diggity)

Billie Jean is not my lover (oh no)
She's just a girl who claims that I am the one (gold digger, gold digger)
But the kid is not my son (I like the way you try to get slick no diggity, no doubt about)
She said I am the one, said I'm the one (gold digger, gold digger)
But the kid is not my son (I like the way you try to get slick no, no, no, no diggity)
No Billie, Billie, Billie Jean

Billie Jean's not my lover
Billie Jean's not my lover (like take it to the bridge)
Billie Jean's not my lover
Billie Jean's not my lover, oh no
Billie Jean's not my lover (no diggity, no doubt about)
Billie Jean's not my lover (Billie Jean, not my lover)
Billie Jean's not my lover, oh no
Billie Jean's not my lover (Billie)
Billie Jean's (gold digger, gold digger)
Not my lover(I like the way you try to get slick)
Billie Jean's not my lover (yeah, ah, yeah ah, ha)
Billie Jean's (gold digger, gold digger)
Not my lover (I like the way you try to get slick)
Billie Jean's not my lover (no, no, no, no diggity)

When this single hit No. 1 in ’96, Queen Pen became the first actual female rapper to appear on a Hot 100 chart-topper. The only other woman who’d rapped on a No. 1 pop hit was Debbie Harry*, who’s mainly a singer, on her band Blondie’s single “Rapture” in ’81.

Apparently because Pen wasn’t well-known, the record label did not give her billing on the single, which was credited to BLACKstreet featuring Dr. Dre. But her part is just as significant as Dre’s, so that shouldn’t matter in terms of her making history.

It took another two years for a female rapper to hit No. 1 again, this time solo, when “Doo Woo (That Thing)” by Lauryn Hill, rapping the verses and singing the chorus, went to the top in ‘98.

On lists of female emcees who’ve topped the Hot 100, Queen Pen is almost always left out, and that’s totally unfair. Even Shawnna gets mentioned as the featured artist on “Stand Up” by Ludacris, a No. 1 hit from ’03, when all she says on the main version is “just like that,” “when I move, you move,” and “hell yeah, ay deejay, bring that back.” But because she’s actually billed on the song, I never see her overlooked on those lists. Queen Pen should definitely be acknowledged for the full verse she raps on “No Diggity.”

————————

*On the Supremes’ 1967 No. 1 pop hit “Love Is Here and Now You’re Gone,” Diana Ross speaks a couple of rhyming lines before the chorus. The song’s co-writer Eddie Holland said in an interview that “talk singing” was what he called it. Ross did much more of that on her first solo No. 1, “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” in ’70.

And it’s worth noting that male singer Lorne Greene does what could be considered a precursor to rapping, backed by a singing chorus, throughout the ’64 No. 1 hit “Ringo.” But singer Debbie Harry was the first woman to rap on a pop chart-topper after that vocal style was established as such with the creation of hip-hop in the mid-’70s. And Queen Pen was the first bona fide female rapper to rap on a song that achieved that feat.
