Uptown Top Ranking by Althea & Donna was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, February 4, 1978 spending 1 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. The song became a national talking point in Britain because no one understood the lyrics. Even though it was in English, the Jamaican patois was as strange as a foreign language to many listeners. Both Althia and Donna were unable to find a successful follow-up and they became one-hit wonders. This was sampled by ABS on their UK #4 hit "What You Got" in 2002.
