"Dance with Me" was the third and final single released from 112's 2001 album, Part III. The released version features Rap artist, Beanie Sigel and is featured on the Bad Boy album, We Invented the Remix.[1] The song peaked at #39 on the Billboard Hot 100, but failed in its home market to copy the success of "Peaches & Cream" which peaked at #4, and "It's Over Now" which peaked at #6. However, the song was a surprise hit in Australia, reaching #2 on the country's ARIA Charts in April 2002 and registering as the 28th biggest song of the year.[2]

The lyric "If you're sexy and you know it clap your hands/if you're sexy and you know it clap your hands/if you're sexy and you know it and you really want to show it clap your hands" is a reference to the nursery rhyme "If You're Happy and You Know It".
