Multi-Platinum R3HAB and TikTok Star Saucy Santana Revive Freak Nasty’s “Da’ Dip”
R3HAB and Saucy Santana join forces for their first collaboration ever in the form of “Put Your Hands On My_,” which many fans will recognize as a cheeky remake of Freak Nasty‘s party anthem from 1996 – “Da Dip.” These two artists know how to put a fresh twist on a club classic, with bouncy, booty-shaking electronic beats underneath vocals from Saucy Santana and autotuned female riffs that add just the right amount of modern sass. “Put Your Hands On My_” is surely bound to become a modern party anthem, whether in your favorite club, during one of R3HAB‘s high-energy sets, or just to get the mood right when you’re gearing up for a night out with your crew. “Put Your Hands On My _” follows R3HAB‘s “Call Me,” in collaboration with Gabry Ponte and Timmy Trumpet, and “I Wanna Run Away” with Mr Eazi and Wafia, while Saucy Santana is currently riding the wave of his viral hit, “Material Girl“, and his most recent single, “Hello” with Tay Money, following his recently released “Keep It Playa” studio album.
“Freak Nasty revolutionized the dance floor when he dropped “Da’ Dip” 25 years ago. The song’s hook is timeless, and Santana and I had a blast reimagining it for 2022. Can’t wait to see how the crowd reacts to my version.” – R3HAB
“I’m so excited to be a part of this record. It’s a different sound for me, my first electronic dance record, and on top of that, it’s with R3HAB. I absolutely love the reference and the vibe of our song.” – Saucy Santana
