"Sex" is a song by American DJ trio Cheat Codes and Dutch DJ trio Kris Kross Amsterdam. The song was released by Spinnin' Records on February 19, 2016, and has since achieved international success.

Composition and release[edit]

Re-using the chorus from the 1991 single "Let's Talk About Sex" by hip hop trio Salt-n-Pepa, "Sex" takes a more pro-sex approach, as opposed to the original's talk about safe sex. It is set in the key of A minor and has a tempo of 105 beats per minute.[1]

The song was first released by Spinnin' Records on February 19, 2016. This was followed by a release as a digital download to Beatport on April 8, 2016,[1] and a release to the iTunes Store by Casablanca Records on May 26, 2016.[2]

Music video[edit]

The song's music video was released to the Spinnin' Records YouTube channel on February 19, 2016. Directed by Chris Campbell, it features Cheat Codes and Kris Kross Amsterdam in a sex education class, with the teacher being played by Hayley Ambriz, and another student played by Braxton Goe.[3] As of October 1, 2017, the video has received over 100 million views.
