U Can’t Touch This” is MC Hammer’s 1990 super hit single from his album Please Hammer, Don’t Hurt ‘Em. It became hammer’s signature song. Rick James shares songwriting credit for the song with Hammer and Alonzo Miller, credit which was granted after he sued Hammer for copyright infringement. The song basically consists of the prominent opening riff of “Super Freak”.

The song received its debut live performance on a late 1989 episode of The Arsenio Hall Show. It secured the Grammy Awards for Best R&B Song and Best Rap Solo Performance in 1991, a new category at the time. The song was a huge success chart wise: it reached #1 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks and #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. The single was also a big success in other parts of the world, peaking at #1 in Australia, the Netherlands and Sweden, and #3 on the UK singles chart. Remember That?
