"Dance with Me" was the third and final single released from 112's 2001 album, Part III. It features Slim on lead vocals. 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 number 39 on the Billboard Hot 100, but failed in its home market to copy the success of "Peaches & Cream" which peaked at number four, and "It's Over Now" which peaked at number six. However, the song became a platinum-selling hit in Australia and Belgium in 2002, reaching number two in Australia, number one in Flanders, and number nine in Wallonia. It finished 2002 as Australia's 28th best-selling single, Flanders' fourth best-selling single, and Wallonia's 40th best-selling single.

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".
