F.U.R.B. (Marro, 2004)
In late 2003, American singer-songwriter Eamon had a one hit wonder with Fuck It (I Don’t Want You Back). In true one hit wonder fashion, it was his debut single off his debut album, I Don’t Want You Back. The song topped the charts in: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Ireland, Italy, both charts in the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Scotland, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK.
By March 2004, Eamon’s smash single had an “answer” song: F.U.R.B. (Fuck You Right Back) by American R&B singer Frankee. No here’s where the story gets a little murky. Frankee claims to have been Eamon’s girlfriend at the time and was the inspiration for the song, while Eamon denies it and says their only connection was for licensing permission by her representatives. Either way, Frankee also achieved one hit wonder status having been inspired by a one hit wonder. Wait it gets eerier. In the UK, Fuck It (I Don’t Want You Back) was replaced by F.U.R.B.! F.U.R.B. also topped the charts in Australia, Belgium and Scotland.
