"U Got 2 Let the Music" is a song by the Italian group Cappella. The song was released as single in September 1993 and was the second from their second album U Got 2 Know. The song had a great success in many countries including the UK, where it reached number two on the singles chart.

It was re-released in 1998, 2004 and 2006, in remixed versions.

The song uses two samples, notably the synthesizer riff, of the 1984 Alphaville song "Sounds Like a Melody",[1] and sampled a vocal from the JM Silk track, "Let the Music Take Control".[2]

It was the 36th best-selling single of 1993 in the United Kingdom.
