FannyPack were a dance music\hip-hop group from New York City that was created by music producers\DJs Fancy and Matt Goias & featured vocalists Jessibel Suthiwong, Belinda Lovell and Cat Hartwell.
The group formed in the summer of 2002 when Matt and Fancy first met aspiring DJ Cat and decided to record her voice on a few of their beats.
A few weeks later while shopping for records, Fancy & Matt heard a girl screaming and discovered that the voice belonged to then 17-year-old Jessibel. After arranging a meeting, they took Jessibel into the studio and recorded a track called “Hey Mami”. A few weeks later, Jessibel’s classmate, Belinda was added to the group as a rapper.
In 2003, FannyPack released their debut album “So Stylistic” on the Tommy Boy Entertainment record label. The album peaked at #3 on Billboard’s Top Independent Albums chart and #44 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Albums chart.
The singles from the album “Cameltoe” and “Hey Mami” were moderately successful and were heard in films such as “Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle” & “The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift”.
In 2005, the group released their follow-up album “See You Next Tuesday.” It’s unknown how or if the album made the charts at all.
The lead single “Nu Nu (Yeah Yeah)” peaked at #29 on Billboard’s Hot Dance Music\Club Play Singles chart and #13 on Billboard’s Hot Dance Music Singles Sales chart. The song was featured in films such as “Stick It” and “Fired Up”.
In 2006, FannyPack opened up for Madonna on the U.S. leg of her “Confessions Tour”. By 2007, they had disbanded.
These days, Cat Hartwell is a member of the band, Holy Hail and Belinda Lovell is a member of the group Retro Glam. In 2010, Jessibel Suthiwong released a solo album called “Brooklyn-4-Life,” but it’s unknown what she’s up to these days.
