"Lady (Hear Me Tonight)"

"Lady (Hear Me Tonight)" is the debut single by French house duo Modjo, written and performed by vocalist Yann Destagnol and producer Romain Tranchart, and released in July 2000. A house music song, it features a guitar sample of "Soup for One" performed by Chic,[1] as written by Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards.[2] The song debuted at number one in the UK, where it stayed for two weeks to became the 16th best-selling single of 2000. It also became a top 10 hit in thirteen countries. In the United States, the song peaked at number one on the Hot Dance Club Songs chart.

The single includes the original version of the track, plus an acoustic version, both performed by Modjo. Remixes have been provided by Harry Romero, Roy Davis, Jr. and Danny Tenaglia. [3]

A mash-up of the track with "The Boy Is Mine" by Brandy Norwood and Monica charted in the UK in March 2001 at number 10, credited to Stuntmasterz.
