What a time to be alive. Yeah that’s right, Sisqo’s 1999 R&B hit “The Thong Song” lives on (rightfully so) and now in a 2017 EDM remake. “The Thong Song” which kissed the 90’s good-bye in style by celebrating the very 90’s/early 2000’s trend of all trends, the thong, has been given new life in a tropical pumped up version thanks to the Swedish electronic producer known as JCY.
“I’ve been asked so many times over the years to make a new version of ‘Thong Song’ and I have declined every time until I heard the new version that JCY did. I thought it was dope and figured maybe it was time to put some new rims on the Bugatti.”, stated Sisqo in an interview with Buzzfeed.
Enjoy the blast from the past in the music video for the new track. The video, which features slow panning montages of glamazon ladies on the beach and in a roller rink, along with dance choreography by Sisqo and his back-up dancers, certainly feels like that of a R&B video from the 90’s and early 2000’s with a touch of Miami Vice. There’s no doubt that this remix is going to get some heavy plays at clubs and festivals. Check it out here! #TBT
