"Ill Na Na" was released only one week after Lil Kim's "Hard Core" album. While she was heavily compared to Kim at the time, Foxy's debut was critically and commercially successful. Listen to the album below via Spotify.
Foxy's popularity was increasing in the late '90s. "Hot Spot" is her lead single off of her sophomore album "Chyna Doll." While the song wasn't a big pop hit like "I'll Be," the iconic music video features Foxy in a metallic bra while dancing in an ice-themed club. The single also led Foxy's album to the top of the charts in 1999.
Below are some notable lyrics to "Hot Spot," per Genius.
🎶 You can catch me at the hot spot cause I Fox, I plots. At the bar y'all, all night, I pops. Is it alright, sho' you right, you can't stop it. This is our world, me and my girls.🎶
"Chyna Doll" topped the Billboard 200 in 1999. Foxy is only the second female rapper to garner a #1 pop album—right after Lauryn Hill's "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill" in 1998. Listen to the LP below via Spotify.
