"Whine Up" is the debut single by American singer Kat DeLuna, released from her debut album, 9 Lives. The song features Elephant Man. It was believed that Puerto Rican rapper Ivy Queen was featured, but DeLuna herself provided the rap.[1] The song earned DeLuna a Billboard Latin Music Award for "Latin Dance Club Play Track Of The Year."[2] The title comes from the Caribbean English (West Indian) pronunciation of wind up meaning to move one's hips on the dance floor.[citation needed]

Music video[edit]

DeLuna had asked fans that live in the New York City area to send in a video of them dancing on her song so they might win the opportunity to be featured in the music video for the song.[3]

The video (directed by Gil Green)[citation needed] premiered via her MySpace page.[citation needed] It starts with DeLuna singing the opening of Dulcissime, from Carl Orff's Carmina Burana for her friend, when she is suddenly interrupted by the tune of her song, at which point she performs the song and dances. The song is accompanied by her dance, The Whine Up.[4] The video premiered on TRL on July 26, 2007 and was on the countdown for 31 days, peaking at #2.[citation needed] The video features future Dance Central choreographer Marcos Aguirre who later cherographed the same song as DLC for its sequel.[citation needed]

Chart performance[edit]

The song was released to mainstream radio in the United States on May 15, 2007.[5] The song debuted at number 24 on Billboard's Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart[citation needed] and went on to peak at number 29 on the Hot 100.[6] The song has had over 500,000 legal downloads in the U.S.[citation needed] and was certified Gold on February 13, 2008.[7] "Whine Up" peaked at No. 9 on the French charts.

Promotions and performances[edit]

DeLuna performed "Whine Up", along with two back-up dancers, at the Miss Teen USA 2007 pageant which aired August 24, 2007 on NBC. Her performance accompanied the top 15 swimsuit competition.[8]

DeLuna recorded a version of "Whine Up" for the 2007 New York Mets[9] and performed this version at Shea Stadium, home field for the Mets.[9]

Other song performances and versions[edit]

"Whine Up" was used as the theme song for WWE's SummerSlam 2007 pay-per-view wrestling event.[10]

"Whine Up" has been featured in or associated with two movies: It was featured in the trailer for the film Feel the Noise (2007) starring Omarion,[citation needed] and was included on the soundtrack for the direct to DVD movie Bring it On: Fight to the Finish (2009).[citation needed]

Actor/U.S. Army Iraq War Veteran J.R. Martinez and professional dancer Karina Smirnoff, winners of the 13th U.S. version of Dancing with the Stars, received a perfect score (30/30) for their freestyle dance that was set to "Whine Up". Their choreography was centered around Afro-Cuban reggaeton rhythms and associated dance moves.[citation needed]
