Sisqó re-releases 'The Thong Song' thinking it's still 1999

Share

"The Thong Song" debuted on New Years Eve 1999, and went on to peak at number 3 on the Billboard charts. "I thought it was dope and figured maybe it was time to put some new rims on the Bugatti".

There are still plenty of lovely women in g-strings dancing for Sisqo, it's just a shame that epic beach dance sequence - complete with levitating and an impressive balancing act - is missing.

The 41-year-old artist paired up with a Norwegian DJ trio JCY to remake the song with a modern, bass-dropping twist.

JCY and the formerly-platinum haired hitmaker Sisqo released a new remix and video for the catchy tune. Can you imagine someone today writing lyrics like, "She had dumps like a truck, truck, truck"?

Memphis Rapper's Bodyguard Arrested In Connection With Little Rock Club Shooting
Shell casings found at the scene of the Forrest City nightclub shooting matched a pistol recovered from Gwynn on July 2. Hampton said he hired Gwynn as his security guard because he "grew up seeing him" and Gwynn "cares about his life".

Although the song isn't bad, whom asked for this?

Check out the new video below.

The video features what one might expect: women gratuitously wearing thongs all the colors of the rainbow but this time some are roller-skating, walking on a beach, popping champagne, jumping on trampolines, showering, and parading down a runway while the rapper and his posse dance to a highly choreographed routine. "We experienced a devastating loss in our team and we were all pretty emotional", he says.
