    UMG / youtube.com

    Amount of grinding it caused: A lot, that "sway" type of grinding. Not really any heavy thrust-humping.

    Part everyone sang: "Your stare.. / those eyes... / I (love it when you look at me baby)."

    SME / youtube.com

    Part everyone sang: "DO THE EAST SIDE RUN THIS MOTHER FOR YA... HELLLL YEAHHH."
