"Tribal Dance" is a song recorded by Dutch Eurodance band 2 Unlimited. [1]

Release and reception[edit]

Tribal Dance was released in April 1993 as the second single from the groups second album, No Limits. Once again, Ray's rap was omitted from the song on the UK release of the single, but had more of his vocals unlike No Limit.

The release scored chart success in many European countries topping the charts in Spain and Finland. The song also topped the Canadian dance chart while peaking at #7 on the US dance charts.

Content[edit]

The track featured a trumpet riff and different kinds of drums throughout the song and the accompanying video was set in the jungle using blue screen in order to create the appearance of members of the band swinging across a jungle backdrop. A picture-in-picture screen showing a video game was also used.

The "Say that again" lyric at the start of the track was sampled from the film Back to the Future.

Appearances[edit]

The song is also featured in the 2006 film Final Destination. It was also used in the music video games Dance Dance Revolution 5thMix and Just Dance 4.
