Cheerleader by OMI was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, May 9, 2015 spending 4 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. This started off as merely a musical interlude on the album - it wasn't supposed to be a full song. The song was produced by Dillon and features the talents of Sly and Robbie and saxophonist Dean Fraser. The original version relies on offbeat guitar rhythms, joined by the saxophone and backing vocals, to conjure a reggae feel. Those are left out of the remix in favor of the piano-driven hooks with percussive bass and synthesized elements for more of a club beat, but components like the prominent solo trumpet and hand claps are retained. This was a #1 UK hit, even though they don't really have cheerleaders there. However, cheerleaders crop up enough in American movies and TV shows that most folks understand what they're about.
