From wiki –

“Candy” is a song by funk group Cameo, released as the second single from their 1986 album Word Up!. It reached number twenty-one on the Hot 100 and number one on the R&B charts in 1987.[1] The song has recently been featured in the video game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and can be heard on the Bounce FM radio station in the game.

The song has been sampled by various artists, including 2Pac (“All Bout U”, featured on his album All Eyez on Me), Will Smith (“Candy”, on his album Big Willie Style), and Mariah Carey (“Loverboy”, on the soundtrack to the film Glitter); the latter song would reach #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2001. The Black Eyed Peas sampled it for the song “Ba Bump” from their album Monkey Business.

Cameo tried to capitalize on the song’s success by re-using the melody on the song “Honey” from their next album, Machismo.

The music video, shot in HD, was directed by Zbigniew Rybczyński.
