The Baha Men play a modernised style of Bahamian dance music known as 'Junkanoo', derived from traditional Bahamanian carnival music, and have been performing together since the early 1980s. Their style also mixes elements of reggae, hip hop and rock. The band's current line-up features Rik Carey, Dyson Knight, Anthony Flowers, Jeffery Chea and Patrick Carey, while past members have been Marvin Prosper and Nehemiah Hield. The band's most notable mainstream success was their 2000 single 'Who Let the Dogs Out', a song which has become huge worldwide, especially in America, and is often used at sporting events. 'Move It Like This' is the band's seventh studio album, and was released in 2002 on S-Curve records. The title track featured in the Hollywood teen comedy 'Big Fat Liar' starring Frankie Muniz, Paul Giamatti and Amanda Bynes.
The album begins with the title track, before being followed by 'Coconut', 'Normal', 'I Thank Heaven', 'The Best Years of Our Lives', 'Break Away', 'Rich in Love', 'Giddyup', 'Blow Your Mind', 'We Rubbin', 'I Just Want to Fool Around' and 'Wave' with some versions of the album also including a different version of 'Move It Like This', Shake It Like That Mix. 'The Best Years of our Lives' was a cover version of a song also released as a single by the UK band Moern Romance.
The title track of the album is one of the Baha Men's most successful songs, at least in purely commercial terms. It reached number thirteen on both the Canadian and New Zealand pop charts, and as of 2009 was the group's second-most downloaded song on iTunes behind their global hit 'Who Let the Dogs Out'. The song has also featured in the video game 'Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball', and was also used in an advertisement for the American Basketball league the NBA.
