Sisqó was always known as one of the standouts in the R&B group Dru Hill, but he’ll always be known for his edgy hit, “Thong Song.” Very few ever knew the story about the song, but on an episode of “The Story of,” Vice sat down with Sisqó and the creators of “Thong Song” to hear how G-strings and violin stings united to create this iconic song that brought thongs to the masses.
The original fans of the song never knew that “Thong Song” was never meant for Sisqó, but once he heard the track he couldn’t let it go. Although the music was originally intended for Michael Jackson, producers Tim & Bob were won over by Sisqo’s enthusiasm and fresh ideas. But Def Jam wasn’t sure that a song about thongs would sell and almost left it off the “Unleash The Dragon” album.
