It’s time for another edition of At Your Request, the video project in which we play hit songs at your request — just like a radio DJ, except our line is never busy. You’d best prepare that booty for some shaking, since today’s pick is Big Sean’s “Dance (A$$)Remix”, featuring Versace model Nicki Minaj. Catch our crown-worthy response below, and submit the tune of your choice via Twitter (@Idolator, #AtYourRequest) now — and tomorrow’s episode could put you in the spotlight.
A big thanks to @patrickdahl for today’s request — and an even bigger thanks to MC Hammer, since without his zeitgeist-rattling 1990 hit “U Can’t Touch This” Big Sean’s “Dance (A$$)” might never have sprung forth. With help from Young Money’s favorite courtesan, the remix to Big Sean’s third Finally Famous single ratchets up the raunchiness. Of course, as with all things Nicki, it’s done with a wink and a smile. (Personally, we can’t wait for the Kidz Bop kids to cover this track.) In a recent interview while on the set of the “Dance (A$$) Remix” video, the 23-year-old dispensed this sage advice: “Enjoy the journey, enjoy the ride don’t burn yourself out.”
Be sure to give us the track title, artist name and a reason why it’s special to you. We’ll look forward to reading your suggestions while listening to Marvin Gaye and sipping on some chardonnay.
