"There It Go (The Whistle Song)" is the second single by American rapper Juelz Santana from his second studio album What the Game's Been Missing!. It is one of his most successful and well known singles to date.[citation needed] It is his highest-charting single to date, peaking at #6 on the Billboard Hot 100, and is the fourteenth highest-charting single for a Dipset artist. The song was featured in the film The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift but is not featured in the soundtrack. A recognizable aspect of the song is the whistling that occurs during the chorus. The song doesn't have any melody, only the drums (kicks and claps) and percussions (whistles, shakes and cowbells).

Music video[edit]

The song also had a music video, in which Santana is about to attend a nightclub, when he gives a little boy, who is his nephew, Ja, a whistle. When asked on what it does, Santana suggests to "blow it and see what happens." Apparently, Santana himself is oblivious to what the whistle does. Throughout the video clip, Santana is seen going to nightclubs and parties, hanging out with attractive women, when all of a sudden they mysteriously leave him and his friends after the sound of a whistle, only to later discover that all the girls he was with ended up being around this nephew, from him blowing the whistle, Santana comes to the realization that the whistle he gave his nephew had the ability to attract any girl who was within the radius of the sound. Keyshia Cole makes a brief cameo during the beginning of the video.
