Ghetto Superstar

What do you get when you combine a re worked chorus from
80's classic 'Islands in the Stream' written by The Bee Gees...

...which was a huge hit for Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers...

 ...with some Pras, rapper ODB (Ol' Dirty Bastard) 
and the beautiful Mya?
You have Ghetto Superstar!

The song was also featured on the soundtrack for the movie
Bulworth, starring Warren Beatty, Halle Berry, and Don Cheadle.
'From one corner to another, ah ahhhh...'


  1. I thought the words were... 'from one lover to another ahh ahhh....'. I have been singing it wrong all these years!

  2. then again, I also thought that the words to Billie Jean were
    '... she's just a a girl who says that I am the one, but the chairlifts not my son.'

  3. Oh Cherie, you were absolutely right to be singing 'From one lover to another ah ahhhh' as this was the original lyric in the 80's version of the song. The lyrics were changed to 'From one corner to another' in the re worked 90's version of the song which is in the clip above. And the Billie Jean 'chairlift' issue - thats' right up there with 'Mama say, mama stole my moccasins....'
