"My Friend" is a song by English duo Groove Armada, released as the second single from their third studio album, Goodbye Country (Hello Nightclub) (2001).

Content[edit]

The song features vocals by Celetia Martin and contains a sample from "Got To Learn How to Dance" by Fatback Band[citation needed] and samples a drum break from Skull Snaps' "It's a New Day".[citation needed] The lyrics are an interpolation from Brandy's 1995 hit "Best Friend".

Release[edit]

The song was featured in a Dutch television commercial for Royal Club soft drinks in 2002,[citation needed] which resulted in a re-release of the single in the Netherlands and a higher charting in the Dutch singles charts than the year before.[citation needed]
