Four songs to get you warmed up for RNB Vine Days

Get ready to boogie down because RNB Vine Days is making its way to Geelong for 2019. Bringing a huge offering of wines and beats, RNB Vine Days will keep you partying away under the summer sun all damn day. Making your wildest ’90s and ’00s dreams come true, this year’s lineup will see Nelly, Craig David, All Saints and Amerie slinging out back to back bangers, with DJ YO! MAFIA keeping the party in full swing throughout the day.

‘Hot in Herre’ by Nelly
This song had us 90’s kids thinking we were about to have a great club experience when in reality it was nothing like that. I mean, people taking their clothes off in the club sounded like a pretty hectic time. Regardless, Nelly made history with this party anthem. After its release, the song reigned number one on the Billboard Hot 100 for seven consecutive weeks. Nelly’s memorable first line alone (“I was like Good gracious, ass is bodacious” is enough to have this one top the list. Embrace your inner Nelly and bring some water-resistant cheek bandages – the chance of getting a sweat on is high with this track.

‘7 Days’ by Craig David
This one just had to be included didn’t it? This one is Craig David’s biggest hit to date – and it’s no surprise why. Telling the tale about seducing a woman over the course of one week, this track has cemented itself as a noughies classic. And let’s be real, we all wish our dating lives went as smoothly as Craig’s in this Number 1 single – especially since he was only 17 at the time! What a legend! It also helped his 2000 album ‘Born to Do It’ make history by becoming the fastest selling album ever by a British male solo act at the time so you can’t argue with that!

‘1 Thing’ by Amerie
Chances are that you probably forgot about ‘1 Thing’. To be honest, we did too until we heard it making this list, reaffirming its status as solid-gold pop class. The dizzying pace of ‘1 Thing’ encapsulates the thrill of infatuation, and the go-go beat moving it along made it a seriously infectious track back in 2005. As well as been featured on the soundtrack to the 2005 Will Smith film “Hitch”, this song took the radio by storm becoming Amerie’s first number 1 hit on the R&B charts and to date, serves as Amerie’s shining musical moment and one of the best songs of the 2000’s. Ah, memories.

‘Never Ever’ by All Saints
All Saint’s smash hit “Never Ever” has it all. On top of a slow beautiful melody and a relatable message of heat break and closure, the song opens with a minute long monologue. The slick ballad spent eight weeks in the Top 10 before finally grabbing the top spot in January 1998, their first Number 1, and went on to solidify their place in British pop history. Plus, the music video features the members of the girl group bathed in ethereal light as they mourn their break ups. Oh and its best line? “The alphabet runs right from A to Z.” So simple, so true.

Special mentions to ‘Walking Away’ by Craig David and ‘Ride Wit Me’ by Nelly.
These 2000 hits are absolute classics. You’d be lying if you say you never belted these babies out on your 1st generation iPod. Go on, admit it…

Alongside these RNB beats, there will be picturesque views, drool-worthy gourmet eats and an incredible selection of signature wines. You won’t want to miss this.

It goes down at Mt Duneed Estate in Geelong on Saturday February 9. Tickets via | Ph: 136 100
