2 Unlimited 'Here I Go'

Chart Peak: 22
Due for release on 13th March '95, 'Here I Go' is the storming new single from hugely successful Dutch duo Anita and Ray.
It's not the smallest hit on Now 30, but this is one case of an upfront dance track. that didn't do the business chartwise. It's hard to say whether this is a surprise or not: on the one hand, 2 Unlimited were one of the most consistently successful acts on the Eurodance scene, but conversely this meant they were releasing a third single from an album that had gone straight in at Number One some nine months previously which obviously meant that a lot of potential buyers already had this song, albeit in a slightly different mix.

As a song it doesn't deviate much from their standard formula, with Ray Slijingaard's raps now being left intact on the UK radio edits. His Dutch accent is a little more prominent that on some of their hits, but otherwise there's nothing out of the ordinary about it. No musical reason for this to have been their first single to miss out on the Top 20, but equally no reason for it to have overcome the handicap of prior sales.
