In the 1970's the hugely successful jazz trumpeter Herb Albert broke away from his Tijuana Brass Band to embark on a solo career. In 1979 topped the Billboard Hot 100 with his instrumental song Rise, which was off the album of the same name. The song was originally intended to be an uptempo song, but during the recording the session drummer pushed to have the tempo slowed down to 100. The popularity of the song got a huge boost from being prominently featured in ABC's soap opera General Hospital. The song was used for the background music in the scene where Luke Spencer rapes Laura Webber. Over the weeks that followed, the song was used on the show numerous times to flashback to that moment. In 1997 the song was sampled by Puff Daddy for rapper The Notorious B.I.G.'s smash hit Hypnotize - the fifth number one hit from the rapper post-death.
