"She Makes Me Go" is a song by Iranian-Swedish singer, entertainer and producer Arash released as a single from his fourth studio album, Superman, which was released in November 2014. The song features Sean Paul.

It was originally released on 17 September 2012 on EMI Music Sweden. It was relaunched on 15 February 2013 in European markets including German, Austrian, French and Swiss markets on Universal Music. The song is an adaptation of ICE MC's hit "Think About the Way".


Substantial parts of the song are taken from an earlier 1994 hit written by the Italian singer, songwriter and music producer Roberto Zanetti (aka Savage and Robyx) and performed by British hip-house / eurodance artist ICE MC entitled "Think About the Way".[1][2] The ICE MC dance hit had featured Alexia on vocals. The Arash hit also borrows the hit's catch-phrase expression "Bom Digi Digi Bom" in the new release.

The earlier song had been an international hit for ICE MC (real name Ian Campbell) with top 10 appearances in Belgium, Italy and Switzerland, and top 20 showing in France, Germany, Netherlands and Sweden and made it to number 38 in the UK Top 40 charts.

In 2012, the song had also been adapted and revamped in yet another version by German dance band Groove Coverage featuring vocals from Rameez. That version had been popular in dance venues and a minor hit in Germany reaching number 54 in the German Media Control AG charts.

Music video[edit]

The music video for this single was released on 11 December 2012.[3] Directed by Fredrik Boklund and shot in Atlanta, Georgia[1] by Radiant3, the video shows Arash and Sean Paul in a pool-side party with a lot of girls dancing. There are also many scenes shot inside the posh house, which had earlier been shooting location for the 2009 American comedy horror film Zombieland.
