About You Don't Know Me

"You Don't Know Me" (originally titled "U Don't Know Me") is a song by American record producer Armand Van Helden, featuring the vocals from German-American singer Duane Harden. It was released on January 25, 1999 as the lead single from his third studio album, 2 Future 4 U. The creation of the song came about when Helden created a looping track composed of several music samples and left Harden to write and record the lyrics alone. The song peaked at number two on the US Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart and reached number one on the UK Singles Chart in February 1999, where it dethroned The Offspring's "Pretty Fly (For a White Guy)" off the top spot. It scored Armand Van Helden his first chart-topper in the UK. "U Don't Know Me" peaked at number seven in France and Italy and topped the Canadian RPM Dance chart. This song was sampled by DJ duo Doman & Gooding for their hit single, "Runnin'".
