Who needs the original Sugababes lineup to reform when founding member of the group Mutya Buena is turning out grade A trash like “Can You Persuade Me,” a cover of Pitbull’s smasheroo “I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)”?
The track is by the outfit known as NightShift, who, according to their/his official MySpace, “were able to combine the genotypes of 11 international multiplatinum UK, US and Jamaican artists to create a powerful and hypnotic combination.”
And part of that combination includes Sisqo. Yes, that Sisqo—the one with the silver hair who sang “Thong Song.” Hear “Can You Persuade Me” below!
The other “boys” on “Can You Persuade Me” that Mutya encourages to “come and show me what you got” include MegaMan, DJ Ironik, Tanto Metro & Devonte, TQ, Steelo and Juxci D. Kinda makes Britney’s “3″ sound like a nursery rhyme by comparison, thematically.
Here’s a dodgy homemade video that was slapped together for the NightShift tune featuring older footage of each of the artists:
