American R&B Singer, record producer and dancer, Mark Althavean Andrews, popularly known as Sisqo, is back! with a huge summer jam! its the remix baby!
Sisqo has just created an updated, “2017 version” of his 1999 massive hit “Thong Song” with the help of Norwegian production trio JCY. “Thong Song” was originally featured on the singer’s 1999 debut album Unleash the Dragon.
The 41-year-old singer told Buzzfeed during an interview, “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,”. “Thong Song” peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts in May 2000.
For the new “Thong Song” updated version, Sisqo goes EDM with a bigger, more tropical production than the original version. Sisqo even tones down the vocal runs amidst the drops. For the video, he retains much of the same aspects of the Miami-set, spring break-themed 2000 clip, with a bevy of thong-bikini clad women running around a beach. Some are also seen in a neon roller rink, still wearing their bikinis as a group of male dancers do choreography to the club-friendly track.
Sisqo also shared why he could not perform any aerobatics in this version due to a tragedy occurring on the heels of the video shoot., Read below:
“The only problem was that, in the days leading up to the shoot, everything that could go wrong, did,” he said to Buzzfeed. “We experienced a devastating loss in our team and we were all pretty emotional. 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.”
