"Boogie 2nite" is an R&Bdance-pop song written by American singer-songwriter Tweet, Nisan Stewart, and John "Jubu" Smith for Tweet's debut album, Southern Hummingbird (2002). No music video for the song was shot as it went for promo only. The commercial release was originally set for December 2, 2002 in the United Kingdom, but due to lack of airplay and the fact there was no video for the song, the single was canceled. The song was featured on the soundtrack to the 2002 film The Transporter. In February 2010, unseen footage of the cancelled music video leaked via internet.

"Boogie 2nite" was originally remixed by Seamus Haji. A re-recorded version of this remix by the British duo Booty Luv was then recorded for their debut album Boogie 2nite and released as their debut single as the aforementioned remix by Tweet was never given a full commercial release, despite it being a club hit.

The song was released in the United Kingdom via the Hed Kandi label on 27 November 2006. The single received favorable reviews and became a hit with DJs. It peaked at number two during its third week on the UK Singles Chart, and spent eight weeks in the top ten. It was the remix of the track by Seamus Haji that was promoted as the main version of the single while the DB Boulevard version was used for the music video. The song is also featured in the expansion pack game Grand Theft Auto: The Ballad of Gay Tony.

The popularity of Say It contributed to the re-entry of "Boogie 2Nite" at number thirty one on the UK Dance Charts as of September 2009, three years after its original release.
