R&B singer #Sisqo’s 1999 #ThongSong hit has made an EDM comeback and it has set the internet ablaze. When asked why the remix comes after 18 years, he told Buzzfeed, “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.” He better know that this song is going to be a hit once again!
Many of Sisqo’s fans could not wait to give their two cents on the remake and have been flooding Twitter with memes and comments ever since the video dropped. Many were not expecting that the new video featured a mostly white models as opposed to the original video which featured mostly Black and Latina models.

"Better"? NAH, this is the gentrified version of a classic. 🙄 But I'm glad Sisqo getting some renewed shine. https://t.co/Ehxe1bUbX9
