Formation and first album
Michael Münzing and Luca Anzilotti formed Snap! in 1989 under the aliases Benito Benites and John “Virgo” Garrett III, as they thought that the public had negative preconceived ideas of German music.
Their first hit “The Power”, a combination of house and hip hop elements which was fronted by rapper Turbo B. and American Singer, Penny Ford, peaked at No.2 in Germany in April 1990 and spent five weeks in that position eventually going Gold for sales of 250,000 units.
The single topped the charts in the United Kingdom, and picked up a Silver-award for sales of 200,000 units. In the U.S., it reached No.2 on the Billboard Hot 100, and was certified Platinum for 1,000,000 units.
