Sisqo Says That 'Thong Song' Boosted Victoria's Secret Sales

Sisqo is best known for his smash hit single “Thong Song” and nearly 20 years after its release, he’s opening up about the song’s effect on thong sales.

The 41-year-old singer says that his song helped boost Victoria’s Secret sales by 80% and he missed out on a partnership opportunity with them because he didn’t act quickly enough.

“Once I realized how big the song was, I was like we need to go and talk to Victoria’s Secret. But everything was moving so fast, it got away from us. By the time the song had blown up, we went to go have a meeting with Victoria’s Secret,” Sisqo said in a new interview to celebrate the song’s 20th anniversary.

“They were like, ‘As much as we love the song, and you seem like a great guy … but thong sales have already gone up 80%.’ They had got their bag already. But fast forward 20 years later and we laughed all the way to the bank too,” he added.

Sisqo Lookalike Confused Everyone at New York Fashion Week

Some designers thought that Sisqo was at their fashion shows during New York Fashion Week, but it was actually just a lookalike who confused event organizers!

The lookalike was spotted in the front rows at the Vivienne Tam (pictured here) and Philipp Plein shows this week. He was also spotted at Kanye West‘s Yeezy show, according to Page Six.

The identity of the lookalike was reportedly discovered when he tried to board a private jet to the Caribbean with a wealthy New Yorker and his passport revealed his name to be Gavin Barnes and his birth year to be 1986. Sisqo‘s real name is Mark Althavean Andrews and he was born in 1978.

“I never said I was Sisqó. People thought I was him, and that wasn’t cool,” Gavin told Page Six. He denies that he posed as the “Thong Song” singer to get into the shows.

The real Sisqo is aware of the lookalike popping up at fashion week and he has posted “Datz not me” on pictures of the lookalike on Instagram.
