Guys, Vanilla Ice is really back with a brand new invention. He has taken his seminal (read: only) hit "Ice Ice Baby" and turned it into a song for Zumba class.
The remix of the 1990 classic is an official collaboration with Zumba, Billboard reports. Zumba's music director told that site that the song will reach "12 million people basically in a week," which means we may have a movement on our hands. (The tune is already available in iTunes.)
The MC, whose real name is Rob Van Winkle, has found a new life in home renovation. He recently appeared on television to discuss his winning strategies for flipping homes, a career that has been documented on "The Vanilla Ice Project," a reality show.
It's great to see Ice finding his stride. As he told HuffPost in March, it took a long time for him to come to terms with his rap career. "I hated myself, I hated the image," he said.
Times have changed. "Hey, our generation is running the entire world," Ice said. For more on the story, head over to Billboard.
S Club 7 -- a British pop group created by former Spice Girls manager Simon Fuller and consisting of members Tina Barrett, Paul Cattermole, Jon Lee, Bradley McIntosh, Jo O'Meara, Hannah Spearritt and Rachel Stevens -- rose to international fame in 2000, before splitting in 2003. In March 2012, it was announced that all original seven members would reunite for seven UK shows, with possibility of a two-album record deal.
Unlike almost all of the other 90s boy bands, the Backstreet Boys never really broke up -- although original member Kevin Richardson did quit in 2006. In 2011, the Backstreet Boys toured with New Kids on the Block, and BSB is planning to release a new album in 2012.
After reuniting in 2008, New Kids On The Block embarked on a highly successful reunion tour. Then in 2011, they joined The Backstreet Boys for the NKOTBSB tour and released a compilation album of the same name, featuring their hits "You Got It (The Right Stuff)" and "Hangin' Tough," and a new recording, "Don't Turn Out the Lights."
Take That formed in 1990 and after a few No. 1 UK singles, the British boy band split in 1996. However, the group reunited in 2005 and have been touring and releasing new music ever since. The band's next album is expected to hit shelves in late 2012, and Take That is also in talks to open the London 2012 Olympic Games.
After reuniting in 2007 for a Spice Girls reunion tour, the British girl power group may reunite again for Queen Elizabeth's upcoming Diamond Jubilee in June. Scary, Baby, Sporty, Ginger and Posh may also don their platform boots for the London 2012 Olympic Games this summer.
