"Rapture" by Blondie.

OK, back to the 80's: This 80'/'81 release was THE FIRST rap-influenced single to top both the Billboard Hot 100 and Hot Dance Music/Club Play charts. It was also the first rap video on young MTV. Rap songs until then used pre-existing music that artists would rap over - this was the first number in the genre with its own original music. First rap song ever by a female performer. Song? Artist?

Yesterday's answer: "Happy" by The Rolling Stones. Ya gotta love ol' Keith! He was SO proud of himself for arriving at the studio EARLY for the first time ever.
