Keep on Jumpin'

"Keep on Jumpin'" is the name of a popular 1970s Disco song and 1990s Dance classic that was written by musician Patrick Adams and Ken Morris. This track has been remade, remixed, and sampled numerous times, but only the 1978 original by Adams's group Musique and Todd Terry's 1996 updated version with Martha Wash & Jocelyn Brown (who was also a member of Musique) would reach number one on Billboard's Hot Dance Club Play charts. Listed here are the most notable versions.

The orignal version was recorded in 1978 by Musique, who took it to number one on Billboard's Hot Dance Club Play chart as the double-side to "In the Bush," the latter being the act's more popular single. The song crossed over to the Urban market and peaked at #81 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart. At the time the single was released, there were questions about its lyrics, which made references to drug use even though it was about having a good time partying the night away. The original is still considered a classic to this day.

In 1996, Todd Terry featuring Martha Wash & Jocelyn Brown's version also reached number one on the Hot Dance Club Play. This version was House oriented and the more popular of the "Keep on Jumpin'" versions, based on strength and vocal ability of Wash and Brown alone. This would the first of two back to back number ones on Dance Club Play chart for this collaboration between the three artists, as their follow-up "Something Goin' On (In Your Soul)" would reach that summit in 1997.

In 2007 British remixer Cornell remixed The Lisa Marie Experience's version, which became a top 20 UK hit which was recorded under the credited "Cornell vs Lisa Marie Experience". The success of the 2007 track may have been fueled by its accompanying video, which featured rival women teams playing soccer in the mud and as they are playing the women become more sexually explicit. The uncensored video is included in the CD maxi-single.
