On this day in music history: April 23, 1988 - “Da’Butt” by E.U. hits #1 on the Billboard R&B singles chart for 1 week, also peaking at #35 on the Hot 100 on May 21, 1988. Written by Marcus Miller and Mark Stevens, it is the biggest hit for the Washington DC based go-go band fronted by lead singer and bassist Gregory “Sugarbear” Eliot. The song is featured in the Spike Lee directed film “School Daze”. Lee will call on bassist/songwriter/producer Marcus Miller to write “a party song” for a scene in his film. Miller will collaborate with singer/songwriter Mark Stevens (brother of singer Chaka Khan) of The Jamaica Boys, and then cut the track with the Washington DC based go-go band Experience Unlimited (aka E.U.). To add “atmosphere” to the song, Miller will have Spike Lee invite the entire cast of the film to the studio, and have a party during the recording session. E.U. will also appear in the film, performing the song.
