"I'm in the House" is a song by the house DJ Steve Aoki, featuring vocals from The Black Eyed Peas frontman will.i.am, posing as his alter ego, Zuper Blahq. The song was first released on November 23, 2009, via iTunes[1] and was made available as a single on March 7, 2010.[2] The song reached #29 on the UK Singles Chart on March 14, 2010, and later entered the UK Dance Chart and the UK Indie Chart, peaking within the top five in each chart. The song was used in an episode of MTV's Jersey Shore.

Music video[edit]

The song begins with Blahq declaring that he is in the house. Although not specified at this moment, it is Steve Aoki's house and this can clearly been seen in the video.[3] The song then applies a reverse story telling technique about how Blahq came to be in Aoki's house. Blahq became lost and accidentally went to a house to ask for directions; it turned out it was the house of his good friend Aoki. They find the situation incredibly amusing and decide to write an electro-style song about the series of unusual events.
