Sisqo Remakes Thong Song & Social Media Gives Interesting Mixed Reactions
Dru Hill’s Sisqo made us feel like it’s 1999 all over again, with the new release of his “Thong Song” remake. In case y’all haven’t heard by now, Sisqo dusted off his thong song routine, gathered up about 20 thong clad ladies for the video and got to dancing with the pop group, JCY.
The remake caught many fans off guard – both in a good way and not-so-good way. Although many were surprised, Sisqo told Buzzfeed that it was about that time for him to upgrade his ’99 multi-platinum selling banger, stating,”It was time to put some new rims on the Bugatti,” in reference to his song’s remake. Check out the remake below…

While others were curious as to why there weren’t more “dumps” in the “trucks” of the video models they chose for a song like “Thong Song.” There was also some discontent over the lack of melanin in the video, which was unlike Sisqo’s original, more diversified “Thong Song” video in 1999. Lastly, some fans feel that no matter how great the remake sounds, a classic should never be remade…

Original “Thong Song” Video
Compare the remake to the original version and let us know what y’all think…
Quite frankly, I think there should have been more diversity in Sisqo’s and JCY’s new “Thong Song” video, but the actual revised song is solid. Overall though, it’s good to see Sisqo still doing his thing, he’s a an incredible artist. He and his Dru Hill ‘brothers’ are also consistently performing and killing the stage everywhere they touch down. Gotta love it!
