Dance music’s had no shortage of remodes and remixes over the years, hell, its somewhat built on them. So much so that the announcement of a dance-tinted remake of Sisqo’s beloved R&B hit “Thong Song” should come as no surprise. However, reports now confirm that the cult hitmaker behind this undisputed cultural phenomenon has called upon three Norwegian producers to give his biggest hit a long overdue remake.
As reported by the Official UK Charts Company earlier today, Sisqo’s 1999 R&B classic will see a formal re-release this Friday alongside Norwegian trio JCY. Having burst onto international radars with single ‘Wasting Your Time‘ earlier this year, JCY (pronounced ‘Juicy’) have not only updated the track with a 21st-century electronic pop twist, but persuaded the Dru Hill frontman into a formal appearance for an update on the single some 18-years since its release.
JCY and Sisqo’s ‘Thong Song’ is out June 9 via Warner Music Norway.
