Scenes from “Rump Shaker” video: Teddy Riley and video model

Well, well, well, we learn something new ’round these parts everyday and today is most definitely one of those days. So, most of us Old Schoolers remember Teddy Riley’s group, Wreckx N’ Effect, right? Thought so, and that also means that you remember their classic video for their 1992 hit song, “Rump Shaker.” The music video was shot on a beach somewhere and it was like a wild party, with fine ladies in swimsuits, that made you feel like you were watching a scene fresh outta Atlanta’s Freaknick spring break back in the day.

There were a few video models who stood out in that video more than others, and one of them just so happens to now be the wife of a multiplatinum selling R&B legend. She’s the young lady who was fake-playing the saxophone intro in the video and out of all the women, she had the biggest spotlight shined on her because she had the scene all to herself. The other ladies had to share their camera time.

The reason this is a tad bit surprising is because when you think of her today, she just seems like the wholesome mother type- still beautiful- but just more soccer mom, instead of sex-symbol-bikini-clad-chick-at-the-party type. So without further ado, ladies and gentlemen, see whose wife is the saxophone “Rump Shaker” below…
