ONTD Original: 2000 - A year of one hit wonders, Pt. 2


The early part of the 21st century was one of the most confusing eras in music. As the 90's came to an end and we moved into Y2K, music didn't have a big boom period for any one genre. Due to the mix of genres in the mainstream, we were bombarded with a horde of one hit wonders. 19 years ago, artists like Sonique, Samantha Mumba and Nine Days were topping the charts. The artists who created their major year 2000 hits were never able to replicate the success. However, their songs always bring back the nostalgia. The year 2000 begins the "part two" of our 2000's one hit wonder series. Let's take another look at the best one hit wonders of the year!


Hoku's "Another Dumb Blonde" didn't age as well as some of the other music released in this year. "Another Dumb Blonde" is Hoku's only true successful single. The song was released in January 2000 and eventually peaked at no. 27 on the US Billboard Hot 100. Hoku went on to see some minimal exposure for her song on the "Legally Blonde" soundtrack.
