After many requests and 18 years, the ‘Thong Song’ is back with a twist.
Originally released on New Years Eve of 1999, ‘Thong Song’ became an iconic pop culture anthem. The song first appeared on Sisqo’s debut album, Unleash the Dragon.
Jcy, a Norwegian EDM trio, revamped the R&B hit and released a new visual last week. The electronic remix is more upbeat while toning down Sisqo’s vocals and focusing on the synthetic rhythm.
In true ‘Thong Song’ fashion, the video is set in a Miami, spring break type scene with beautiful women adorned in – you guessed it – thongs. Sisqo hits some sweet moves in the center of a neon roller rink, surrounded by bootylicious skaters.
Although some will say the remix does not touch the original, the ‘Thong Song’ will always have a special place in our hearts!
