This isn’t the original video because YouTube won’t let any of the original videos be embedded. Nice going YouTube! Above is the Recall version of the song. It is more of the dance version with more sex appeal. Here is a direct link to the original Mr. Vain video with all the 90’s cheesiness.
“Mr. Vain” peaked at #2 on the Billboard Dance Charts in December of 1993. Overall the song only hit #17 on the Billboard charts back on January 22, 1994. The band really needed a “We’re big in Europe” t-shirt as they experience more notoriety overseas than here in America. Fun fact, the band went through many line-up changes and even replaced Tania Evans in 1997 with Kim Sanders. Tania Evans wasn’t the original female vocal for the band, but she is the voice on their biggest hits “Mr. Vain” and “Got to Get It.”
Torsten Fenslau, the founder of the band, died in a car accident in 1993.
Tania Evans released an album of house music called Strength To Carry On back in 2003 and then wed in 2004.
Jay Supreme left Culture Beat back in 1997 to start a solo career. He only released one single to date and it was “Your Love (Encore)” together with Cheryll Lynn back in 2000.
