Throwback Thursday: Sisqo ‘Thong Song’ (2000)

I can’t believe we’ve been doing Throwback Thursday for so long now and I haven’t done Sisqo’s “Thong Song!”

“Thong Song” was the second single off of Sisqo’s solo album, Unleash the Dragon. 

Sisqo was formerly of the group Dru Hill.

“Thong Song” was actually nominated for four Grammy Awards. It didn’t win, but still. Nominated for four!

The song peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

The music video garnered some backlash for depicting women scantily clad and exploiting them. However, the director of the music video, Joseph Kahn explained, “I listen to ‘Thong Song’, and I say, ‘Well, this song is about asses.’ So you can either accept it and do something like I did, or you can go and try and turn the ‘Thong Song’ into some kind of Chemical Brothers video and make it all pretentious; about some fucking communist upheaval or something. Let’s just relax and make a booty video, and let’s make a really good one, and make it fun.”

And there you have it.

I can’t believe this song was a hit. It is so ridiculous.
