"Say OK"

"Sneakernight" is a song by American pop singer Vanessa Hudgens. It is the only single from her second album, Identified. Produced by J. R. Rotem, it was available on iTunes on May 27, 2008 and was released in Germany on February 6, 2009.[2]

Critical reception[edit]

Ryan Dombal of Blender said:

And it all seems innocent enough — but that "basically" makes us think there may be more to these sneakernights than mere dancing. The innuendo is there for those who want to hear it ("Put your sneakers on / Let’s go all night long!"). Teens will dance (and giggle), parents will overpay for the concert and all will be right with the teen pop universe.(3/5 stars).[3]

Maria Dinoia of Common Sense Media stated:

Parents need to know that unlike this High School Musical star's other songs that tend to be about boys and high school relationships, this one is an innocuous song about going dancing. The tame video shows Hudgens putting on her sneakers, heading to the club, and yes, dancing.(2/5 stars).[4]

Music video[edit]

The music video shows Hudgens going to a house party with a group of friends wearing glowing neon sneakers (Eckō Unltd. shoes). It starts with Hudgens calling her friends on her cell phone, and picking out sneakers. On the second verse, she is now at the party and while on her way to a guy staring at her, she is blocked by another guy who tries to impress her by showing some dance moves. It premiered on on June 13, 2008 and on MTV's TRL on July 1, 2008. The video was directed by R. Malcolm Jones.[5]
