Legendary hip-hop group Naughty By Nature is celebrating its 20th anniversary with a new album. The LP, Anthem Inc., is set for release November 15 through international indie label Entertainment One and is a compilation of old and new tracks. The mix will include a re-recording of the notable “O.P.P” and “Hip Hop Hooray,” both of which still get adequate spin time in clubs decades after they were released.
Naughty began its celebration by appearing on Late Night With David Letterman in February. Since then the group has been touring around the world, and yesterday it released via iTunes a new single off the album called “Perfect Party,” which features R&B singer Joe and reverts back to that old feel-good party vibe for which Naughty is known. Other appearances on the album include Queen Latifah on the song “God Is Love.”
