About Just A Friend
“Just a Friend” is a song written, produced and performed by American hip hop artist Biz Markie. It was released in September 1989 as the lead single from his album, The Biz Never Sleeps. It is Markie”s most successful single, reaching #9 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1990. The song interpolates the 1968 song “(You) Got What I Need” recorded by Freddie Scott, whose basic chord and melody provided the base for the song”s chorus and made it famous. Markie”s positiveeast.org describe romantic frustration after pursuing a woman who is actually romantically involved with another man who she falsely claims is “just a friend. ” Due to the widespread popularity of the song along with its acclaim and its influence on pop culture (and Markie”s failure to have another charting Hot 100 song), Biz was classified by VH1 as a one-hit wonder, and “Just a Friend” was ranked 81st on VH1″s 100 Greatest One-Hit Wonders in 2000, and later as number 100 on VH1″s 100 Greatest Songs of Hip Hop in 2008.
