What Is Love" is a song recorded by Trinidadian-German Eurodance artist Haddaway.

It was written
and produced by Dee Dee Halligan (a.k.a. Tony Hendrik and Dieter Lünstedt) and Junior Torello
(Karin Hartman-Eisenblätter) of Coconut Records in Cologne. Recorded in the early 1990s, it later
experienced a revival as the song from the Saturday Night Live "Roxbury Guys" sketches, where two
brothers played by Chris Kattan and Will Ferrell frequently went to dance clubs with a third person
(including actors such asSylvester Stallone and Jim Carrey), credited as "Barhop". These sketches
were later made into the 1998 feature film A Night at the Roxbury but the "Barhop" role was dropped
during the production of the film.
The song peaked at no. 2 in the United Kingdom and Germany, but it ranked higher at no. 1 in 13
other countries, all of them eitherEuropean or Asian. The song reached no. 11 on the Billboard Hot
100 in the United States and no. 12 in Australia.
