"1, 2, 3, 4 (Sumpin' New)" is a 1995 song recorded by American rapper Coolio. It was the third single from the album Gangsta's Paradise and was released in early 1996. Initially entitled "Sumpin' New", the song uses a sample from "Thighs High (Grip Your Hips and Move)", recorded in 1981 by American jazz trumpeter Tom Browne.[1] It also includes a vocal sample from "Wikka Wrap" by The Evasions, from 1981. The main riff is from "Good Times" by Chic, from 1979.

The song achieved success in many countries, including the U.S., France and New Zealand, where it was a top ten hit.
