"Knockin' Da Boots" became one of the biggest R&B singles of 1993 according to the Billboard charts, where it peaked at number three for seven weeks, and also topped the R&B chart for four weeks,[1] and it helped win the band a Soul Train Music Award for Best R&B/Soul or Rap New Artist. Knockin' Da Boots, was originally titled, "Knockin the Tennis Shoes" and was co written by Eric Coutryer in 1992 before it debuted in 1993.
