Do The Bartman

"Do the Bartman" is a pop rap song from The Simpsons album The Simpsons Sing the Blues. It was performed by The Simpsons cast member Nancy Cartwright and was released as a single from the album on November 20, 1990. The song was written and produced by American recording artists Michael Jackson and Bryan Loren. 

Although Jackson did not receive any credit because he was under contract to another record label, he was a fan of The Simpsons—especially the character Bart—and had called the producers one night offering to write Bart a number-one single and do a guest spot on the show.

Even though it had lots of radio airplay in the United States, "Do the Bartman" was never officially released as a single in the US. It topped the charts in Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, Norway, and the United Kingdom. It also reached the top 10 in Sweden and the Netherlands, and was certified gold in the UK.

 A music video, which was directed by Brad Bird, was released for the song in 1991. The video became a hit on the American network MTV and received a nomination at the 1991 MTV Video Music Awards.
