2 In A Room is a Dominican hip hop, freestyle music and house music duo, from Washington Heights, New York, which includes rapper Rafael "Dose" Vargas and producer/remixer Roger "Rog Nice" Pauletta, who was replaced by Edwin "Floodlight" Ovalles after 1990. They are best known for their 1990 hit single "Wiggle It". It spent two weeks at #1 on the Hot Dance Club Play chart (and #3 in the UK Singles Chart,[1 ]) and then crossed over to mainstream radio, and climbed to #15 on the Billboard Hot 100, eventually becoming a gold single. Before that, they were known for a track called "Do What You Want" (1990) that got a lot of club and DJ play in New York and Chicago.

"El Trago (the Drink)" was a #86 Billboard Hot 100 chart entry (the last of their pop hits), but they did chart several more singles on the dance chart through the 1990s.

Their first release in the UK was "Somebody In The House Say Yeah!" in the late part of 1989.

They later changed their name to Fulanito; and style of music to merengue. Vargas, also known under Dose Material, was also member of 740 Boyz from 1991.
