"She Bangs" is an up-tempo, salsa-influenced song made famous by Ricky Martin via his 2000 album Sound Loaded. The lyrics, loaded with metaphor and double entendres, express the singer's fascination with a woman who may after all be Lady Luck herself. The song was co-written by Desmond Child and Draco Rosa and produced by Rosa and co-writer Walter Afanasieff.

Desmond Child co-wrote Martin's number one hit "Livin' la Vida Loca" as well as several hits for Bon Jovi and other rock artists in the 1980s and '90s. Draco Rosa was Martin's former Menudo bandmate. Walter Afanasieff had won a Grammy Award for Song of the Year the previous year as producer of Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On".

The success of "She Bangs" reaffirmed Martin as a formidable crossover artist. Sound Loaded was the follow-up to Martin's 1999 crossover breakthrough album Ricky Martin and "She Bangs" was released to radio in advance of the album as its first single. By 2000, the main Billboard Hot 100 and Hot Latin Songs charts had splintered into a myriad of sub-charts and the song became a hit on several of these, debuting on the Hot 100 and other charts beginning the week of October 7, 2000, and reaching its various chart peaks throughout November, December and January.

Music videos[edit]

The official music video, which was shot in mid-August and was directed by Wayne Isham, was the subject of a season 3 episode of the MTV series Making the Video, a behind-the-scenes documentary style show that features the on-set filming and in-studio editing of popular artists' clips. It was aired in September 2000 and became an MTV hit, receiving heavy rotation on the channel. The video, which features dancer Channing Tatum, was also released with a Spanish version of the song.[citation needed]

Using an underwater theme, set on the night of a full moon, the video features Martin singing and dancing in an undersea nightclub, as fish and mermaids swim by. In a brightly lit kaleidoscopic section, a semi-naked Martin is mercilessly pawed by adoring women from every side. Shorty afterwards he is pulled into a cramped glass cubicle where five dancing women proceed to vigorously caress him and remove his clothes. Eventually, escaping the clutches of the dancing undersea throng, be bobs back up to the surface of the sea, where it is now daytime.

Chart performance[edit]

The song reached number twelve on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, while a Spanish-language version reached number one on the Hot Latin Songs for one week. The song hit number one on the Tropical Songs chart for five weeks. The song also hit number two on the Latin Pop Songs chart, and number eight on the Hot 100 Airplay and Pop Songs charts. "She Bangs" went to number twenty-four on the Adult Pop Songs and number thirty on the Rhythmic Top 40. In December, remixes debuted on the Hot Dance Club Songs chart, ultimately peaking at number twenty-seven in January 2001. Although released long before the digital era, it has sold 152,000 digital copies in the US.[1] The song also peaked at number two in Canada.

In the United Kingdom, "She Bangs" became Martin's second most popular song, peaking at number three. In Australia, the song debuted at number three and remained in the top ten for six more weeks. The song also hit the top five in Spain, New Zealand, Finland and Norway, going to the number one spot in Sweden and Italy. The single was certified Platinum in Australia, Gold in Denmark and Sweden, and Silver in the UK.

Awards[edit]

"She Bangs" was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance at the 43rd Grammy Awards. The Spanish-language version of the video won a Latin Grammy Award for Best Short Form Music Video at the Latin Grammy Awards of 2001 and Lo Nuestro Award for a Video of the Year.[2] "She Bangs" also won an International Dance Music Award for the Best Latin 12-inch Single, funround 5.
