If you haven’t thought about Sisqo since, say, 2001, you’re probably not alone. Aside from a couple of reality TV series appearances and a couple of released albums this century, Sisqo is still trading in on his famed novelty 2000 song, “The Thong Song.”

Proving that theory true is the news that Sisqo has recorded another version of “The Thong Song.” Except this time, he’s not paying homage to the thong. Instead, he’s giving praise to LeBron James. Sure, it’s worth a listen, especially if you have strong opinions about postseason NBA awards and don’t care for James Harden, Kevin Durant, or Steph Curry.

Apparently, FS1 TV/radio personality Colin Cowherd was the man responsible for commissioning this artwork. Somehow, for as big as “The Thong Song” was in this culture, it never reached No. 1 on the U.S. music charts. Perhaps James and the NBA can amend that miscarriage of justice. Perhaps Cowherd and Sisqo can right that wrong-wrong-wrong-wrong-wrong.
