The title track of Here Comes the Hotstepper was Ini Kamoze's big pop crossover hit. Also featured on the soundtrack to Ready to Wear, the song lifts a line from "Land of 1000 Dances" and places it on an infectious dancehall beat -- it's a great single that deserved to be a huge hit. The rest of the album isn't as strong, but there are enough first-rate tracks to make it enjoyable for most fans of the single.
