Haddaway Performs What Is Love
We were very happy to be chosen as the official photographer for this event of Haddaway on stage at the Copernicus Center in Chicago, IL. Haddaway was also joined by Londonbeat and La Bouche for a night of non-stop music!
Haddaway’s break came in 1992 when he was signed by German label Coconut Records. His debut single “What Is Love” rapidly became popular in Europe, reaching number 2 in Germany and the United Kingdom. In Germany, the single sold 900,000 copies, in the UK, it was certified Gold for shipment of 400,000 units. It later reached number 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was certified Gold for shipments of 500,000 units. By the beginning of 1994, worldwide sales of “What Is Love” had already reached 2.6 million.
In 1995, he released his second album The Drive, which spawned the UK top 20 hit “Fly Away”, as well as “Catch a Fire” and “Lover Be Thy Name”. “What Is Love” enjoyed a resurge in popularity as the theme music for the head-bobbing, nightclubbing-addicted Butabi brothers (Will Ferrell and Chris Kattan) on Saturday Night Live and the subsequent film A Night at the Roxbury. Haddaway’s subsequent albums were more soulful, but since 1998, the singer has struggled to repeat the mainstream commercial success of his early hits. Albums Let’s Do It Now and My Face (the latter re-released as Love Makes) all failed to chart, producing only a handful of moderately successful singles.
