AMERICAN singer Kat Deluna samples Shaggy’s It Wasn’t Me and Sister Nancy’s Bam Bam on her latest single Bum Bum.

The track is a collaboration with American Rhythm and Blues singer Trey Songz.

Bum Bum is released by Global Music Brand/Entertainment One. It is the first single from Kat’s third album Viva Out Loud.

Radio disc jockey and producer Kurt Riley confirmed the authorised sample of Bam Bam which was originally produced over 30 years ago by his father Winston Riley.

The 27-year-old Kat Deluna, whose parents are from the Dominican Republic, was signed to Epic Records in 2007 when she teamed with Elephant Man on Whine Up, a Top 40 Billboard Hot 100 hit.

That song also topped Billboard’s Dance Music Club Play chart and was named Latin Club Play Track of the Year at the 2008 Latin Billboard Music Awards.

Deluna’s debut album 9 Lives also contained another Billboard hit, Run the Show. Her sophomore album, Inside Out was released in 2010 by Universal Music Belgium and produced the European hits Unstoppable, Push Push and Dancing Tonight.

Bam Bam was a massive hit for Sister Nancy early in her career for Riley’s Techniques Records. It has been sampled or used in several songs and television commercials, including recently by sports company Reebok.

It Wasn’t Me was a hit from Shaggy’s massive 2000 album Hot Shots. The song featured singer Ricardo ‘Rik Rok’ Ducent and spent four weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
