I didn’t mention it in any of my VMA related posts, but you know since then, I’ve seen the show at least another 2 times this week. TI’s performance was also noteworthy, and I’m liking the song “Live Your Life” that he has with Rihanna (yes, ANOTHER song I’m liking with Rihanna in it).
Check his entire performance at the VMAs, including the duet with Rihanna, in the youtube flick below…
UPDATE 9/17/2008: I see that they removed the bootlegged VMA performance from youtube so here’s a link to the bootleg view of the music video instead. 😉
Your ears are not deceiving you, the track samples the song “Dragostea din tei” by O-Zone used in the infamous Numa Numa Dance video. (source: prefixmag.com)
I decided to research this Numa Numa phenomenon after CutSleeveBoy’s comments on one of my posts about the VMAs, and The Bitten Peach post titled Shabu Shabu. I kinda feel for young Gary Brolsma. While his video was such a youtube hit, however, I don’t think the countless youtube link clickers were laughing with him…if you know what I’m saying.
Here’s some linkey-poos for youz…
WIKIPEDIA- NUMA NUMA
Me thinks that T.I. has another hit on his hands! 😎
