"Holidae In" is a song by American rapper Chingy. It's the second single off his debut album Jackpot. The song features rappers Ludacris and Snoop Dogg. The song peaked at number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100, his second consecutive top 5 hit on that chart. It also reached number 2 on both the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs charts respectively and charted in the top 40 in countries like Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the UK. A music video by Jeremy Rall was created for the single that was inspired by Tupac Shakur's 1995 single "Temptations", that features all three artists at a motel.

Critical reception[edit]

Nathan Rabin of The A.V. Club was positive towards the song, finding Chingy being able to hold his own opposite Ludacris and Snoop Dogg saying "it seems less like two icons helping out a scrappy newcomer than like a collaboration among three bona fide superstars."[1] Matt Cibula of PopMatters panned the song, finding the scenario tiring and its guest stars contributed nothing to it saying "Big stars phoning it in is always a turn-off, and the fact that they bury this song at track #12 is telling. No one likes this stuff."[2]

Commercial performance[edit]

"Holidae In" debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 the week of September 20, 2003 at number 73 while "Right Thurr" was number 3 on that chart.[3] It entered the top 40 by moving thirty spots from number 61 to 31 the week of October 4, 2003.[4] It moved three spots from number 21 to 18 the week of October 18, 2003.[5] It entered the top 10 the week of October 25, 2003 by moving nine spots to number 9 with "Right Thurr" positioned at number 7.[6] It peaked at number 3 on the week of November 8, 2003.[7] The song stayed on the chart for twenty-one weeks.[8] This gave Chingy his second consecutive top 5 hit on that chart and both Ludacris and Snoop Dogg their third and sixth top 10 hit respectively.

Music video[edit]

Directed by Jeremy Rall,[9] the video adapts the concept of Tupac Shakur's 1995 single "Temptations", where the viewer is guided through a "Maniac Mansion" called the Jackpot Inn, in which every room has a special feature including a sleeproom, a pillow fight room (Room 102), Jamaican smoke room (Room 103), a neon glow room (fitness room) and there's also a Brady Bunch parody with a 3x3 checked screen segment. Also in the video is a man set to look like Tupac, and one of the three in the front of the Jackpot Inn sign wears a shirt that parodies the Holiday Inn logo featuring the band's name and another wearing a shirt that parodies The Home Depot logo as "The Ho Depot".

The video was nominated for an MTV Video Music Award for Best Hip-Hop Video in 2004 but lost to OutKast's "Hey Ya!".
