“Here Comes the Hotstepper” is a song co-written and recorded by Jamaican dancehall artist Ini Kamoze. It was released as the lead single from his 1995 album Here Comes the Hotstepper as well as the soundtrack to the film Prêt-à-Porter. It is best known for its “naaaa na na na naaaa…” chorus inspired by the Wilson Pickett cover of “Land of 1000 Dances“.
