“WANNA BE ON TOP? Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah!” Who else remembers one of the most iconic anthems in reality television, the America’s Next Top Model opening theme song? Many fans of the franchise believed it was Tyra who sang the lyrics, until the true identity of the singer’s voice was revealed just this week on social media. 

None other than Love and Hip Hop’s own Moniece Slaughter took to Instagram and posted a photo of a royalty check on her story with the caption, “more America’s Next Top Model money.” The singer also thanked her father, David Thomas of gospel group Take6 who got her the singing gig fresh out of high school. The fact that the theme song is still paying her bills to this day is FIERCE as Tyra Banks would say.

The highly popular reality television series ran for a total of 24 seasons, discovering many success stories over the years including; Eva Marcille, Yaya DaCosta, and Nyle DiMarco. The show has unfortunately yet to make a return to our television screens and sadly doesn’t look like it’ll be anytime soon considering the pandemic’s profound effects on both the fashion and entertainment industries.

On a lighter note, fans of America’s Next Top Model can look forward to gushing over their beloved show along with the show’s creative director, Jay Manuel. Every Friday Jay has been leading an hour long discussion of each season on Instagram Live along with special guests to spill all the show’s tea that went on and offscreen. Guests so far include Top Model alumni such as Toccara Jones, Isis King, and Sutan Amrull.
