Assembled by R&B production guru Teddy Riley, Blackstreet first hit the scene in 1994 with their self-titled debut. Merging soulful vocal harmonies with catchy, bass-heavy hip-hop beats, the four-man group found an eager and accepting audience in the New Jack crowd. Their 1996 follow-up Another Level featured the smash-hit "No Diggity" and sent them soaring up the charts. They've worked with several notable hip-hop artists, including Jay-Z and Foxy Brown. In 1999 Blackstreet released their third album Finally.Download No diggity by Blackstreet
