Description

"It Takes Two" is a song by American hip-hop artists Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock that was later certified platinum. Over the years the song has been covered and sampled by various recording artists. The song samples heavily from Lyn Collins' 1972 song "Think (About It)", using multiple drum breaks, the well known "Yeah! Woo!" sample, as well as the lyric sung by Collins which gives It Takes Two its title.[1] The famous introduction of the song is spoken over a sample of "Space Dust" by The Galactic Force Band (1978). The music video "It Takes Two" was directed by Peter Lauer and Pam Thomas, who worked in MTV's promotions department alongside Peter Dougherty, Ted Demme and Mark Pellington. The first scene, where the DJ and little boy are talking, was not filmed in the USA, but in Niue, an island in the Pacific.
