Sisqo Remakes ‘Thong Song’ Into a Sexy EDM Summer Anthem [VIDEO]
Sisqo's “Thong Song” is already a classic R&B song and a club favorite. But the former Dru Hill singer kicked it up a notch and remade the 1999 track into a sexy EDM summer anthem.
On Tuesday (July 18), Sisqo and JCY, a Norwegian DJ trio, premiered their new video for the “Thong Song” remake. While the original is still a classic, the new version updates it with a groovy electro beat and steel drum rhythms.
"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,” Sisqo told BuzzFeed. “I thought it was dope and figured maybe it was time to put some new rims on the Bugatti.”
The new video doesn't come close to the beach and booty-full delight of the original Hype Williams-directed visual (watch it below), but it's still fun to watch. Sisqo doesn't do any air-defying backflips but he does perform a few dance steps at a roller-skating rink with a bevy of beauties. There's also a beach scene with several models frolicking in the sand.
In the end, there's still plenty of dumps like a truck and Sisqo is still living la vida loca. Watch the video above.
