In 1971 the funk band The People's Choice formed in Philadelphia and released their first single I Like To Do It. The song charted well and got the attention of Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff, who had just formed Phliadelphia International Records (PIR). In 1975 Gamble & Huff signed the group to their label and produced their chart topping single Do It Any Way You Wanna. The song, like most of their hits, was mainly instrumental. The same year the song was featured on their debut album Boogie Down U.S.A., and it was also featured in the Fred Williamson film Death Journey in 1976. The song has been sampled numerous times such as by The Jungle Brothers in 1989's What U Waiting 4, and by 2Pac in 1993's Holler If Ya Hear Me. In 1976 reggae deejay and toaster Dillinger sampled Do It Any Way You Wanna, and used it in his crossover hit single Cokane In My Brain.
