The Re-Match

Nine2Five” is the renamed and re-recorded “The Ordinary Boys” remix of Lady Sovereign’s single “9 to 5”. The remix was released as a duet single and was credited as the Ordinary Boys vs. Lady Sovereign and was the seventh for the Ordinary Boys and the fourth for Lady Sovereign. A new music video was shot for the single but Lady Sovereign had to film her parts for the re-make in the US.

The single’s re-release was a much bigger hit than the original, peaking 27 places higher than the original at number six on the UK Singles Chart, becoming Lady Sovereign’s first UK top-10 hit and the Ordinary Boys’ second.

The song was featured on the St. Trinian’s Soundtrack in 2007.
