Uptown Top Ranking" is a song and single by the Jamaican teenage singers Althea Forrest and Donna Reid, recorded when they were 17 and 18 years old respectively. Released in 1977, the song comprises the girls ad-libbing to deejay track "Three Piece Suit" by Trinity. The song was initially recorded as a joke. The record was played by accident by BBC Radio 1 DJ John Peel, resulting in numerous requests for additional plays
The title "Uptown Top Ranking" describes what a country Jamaican does when he goes to the city to show off. The producer Joe Gibbs came across a song by reggae star Trinity called "Three Piece Suit" and he decided to record a female response as a companion. His engineer Errol Thompson came up with the backing track and the Jamaican female duo 17-year-old Althia Forest and 18 year-old Donna Reid supplied various local slang words for the lyrics. Mikey Dread featured the record on his program Dread At The Controls, and it was a hit in Jamaica . Both Althia and Donna were unable to find a successful follow-up and they became one-hit wonders. This was sampled by ABS on their UK hit "What You Got" in 2002. More songs from Althia and Donna.
