Now the “Thong Song” is making a comeback! And none other than Sisqo himself is responsible for the remake.
“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.”
There’s even a new music video to go with it. It doesn’t have the gravity-defying feats of the original, but Sisqo explained why that’s the case.
“”The only problem was that, in the days leading up to the shoot, everything that could go wrong did. We experienced a devastating loss in our team and we were all pretty emotional,” he said.
“On top of that, I’d just done a show on the complete opposite side of the country where I dislocated three ribs. The epitome of insult to injury was the couple of hours we had to learn brand new choreography for the video right before recording it where in most cases you get a week to learn a new routine. Even though I had to perform in the video injured, I think it turned out pretty good.”
Uh, yeah it did! Of course, we’re digging the EDM spin on it as well thanks to JCY’s touch.
