"Hit Me Up" is the Second single by American singer Gia Farrell. The song is included on the Happy Feet movie soundtrack.[1]

Music Video[edit]

In the video the main basis is on the Happy Feet theme with Gia appearing in three different sets with dancers in the background while singing the song. The only indications of the song being on the Happy Feet soundtrack is when Gia is singing out in the front of a theatre and above her on the movies showing list is "Happy Feet", and also when in the middle of the video her backup dancers are seen in tuxedos and wearing costume penguin masks as they all dance in an arctic scene.

Song information[edit]

The song is about a confident girl who gets attention everywhere she goes. She sings to a guy telling him to "hit me up". "To hit up", a term popularized by users of the social networking website MySpace, refers to contacting a person via electronic means. In this case there is a romantic interest for the person being "hit up".

"Hit Me Up" was used as the opening theme for Germany's Next Topmodel, Cycle 2. It was featured in a Wheat Thins's commercial for garden vegetable flavored crackers, and gained attention again when it was performed in May 2008 by Syesha Mercado on American Idol's seventh season at the top three stage. The song was also in an episode of Gossip Girl Season 1 Episode 2, The Wild Brunch, when the cooks are getting ready for Bart Bass Brunch.
