Modjo was a French house musical duo made up of producer Romain Tranchart (born 9 June 1976) and vocalist Yann Destagnol (a.k.a. Yann Destal). They had major success in 2000 with their hit single “Lady (Hear Me Tonight)”.
It was released on 25 June 2000 as the lead single from the duo’s self-titled debut studio album. It became a major worldwide success, topping at least 10 music charts, including the national charts of Ireland, Spain, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. It also topped the US Hot Dance Club Songs chart in January 2001. It features a guitar sample of “Soup for One” performed by Chic, as written by Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards. In 2011, Chic added the song to their concert setlist, which is performed as a mash-up song with “Soup for One”.
As of 2017 the single has sold 2 million copies worldwide.
