The Power

The Power by Snap! was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, March 31, 1990 spending 2 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. Snap! was created by the German production duo of Michael Manzing and Luca Anzilotti. They were the first to use sampled dance tracks augmented by a soulful female singer and a male rapper - collectives like C + C Music Factory and The KLF followed this formula. "The Power" was a massive hit, and it was based on the rap from Chill Rob G's "Let The Words Flow" and a sample of disco singer Jocelyn Brown's song "Love's Gonna Get You," which is where the "I've got the power" line comes from. This was the first rap-based track to hit #1 in the UK.
