"Wiggle" is a song by American recording artist Jason Derulo, released as the fourth single from his third U.S. studio album, Talk Dirty (2014) in North America. In Europe, the song was released as the sixth single from his third international album, Tattoos and the first single from the special edition of the album. The song features American rapper Snoop Dogg.

Background and composition[edit]

"Wiggle" was written by Jason Derulo, Eric Frederic, Axident, Jacob Kasher, Sean Douglas, John Ryan, Joe Spargur, and Snoop Dogg. Production for the song was handled by Ricky Reed, Honua Music and Axident. The former previously produced Derulo's worldwide hit single, "Talk Dirty". It was recorded at Serenity West Recording in Los Angeles, Tha Compound in Los Angeles and at Start From Infinity "Joshua Tree Sessions" and mixed by Manny Marroquin.[2]

Producers Ricky Reed, Honua Music and Axident used toy flutes, hand clappers, peanut wrappers, and percussive instruments as sound effects.[3]

Jason Derulo chose to collaborate with Snoop Dogg because he "is the coolest, most swagged-out rapper there is. He's iconic, and I wanted to go for a more iconic look for this one."[4] Derulo approached him while they were at an All-Star game. Once he heard the song, Snoop Dogg sent Derulo a message saying: "This is crazy. I'll get back to you in 48 hours". "That's exactly what happened", Derulo explained.[5]

MTV News' Christina Garibaldi described "Wiggle" as an "upbeat club-ready song that's all about a woman's "big fat butt"."[6]

Music video[edit]

A music video for the song was released on YouTube on May 21, 2014. It was directed by Colin Tilley and features a cameo appearance from R&B singer Ne-Yo.[7]

Critical reception[edit]

"Wiggle" received mixed reviews from music critics. The song was on Spin's list of "The 101 Best Songs of 2014".[8] In a negative review, "Wiggle" was named one of the 10 worst songs of 2014 by Time.[9] After analyzing the lyrics, Australian pop culture site Irkitated said "I am struggling to see the correlation between a booty being like two planets and a ham sandwich but then again when you pull lyrics out of a bowl to write your songs, not everything is going to make sense".[10]

Live performances[edit]

On July 4, 2014, Derulo performed "Wiggle" on Good Morning America as part of its Summer Concert Series.[11] On August 10, 2014, Derulo performed the song at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards.[12] Variety described the song as a highlight of the ceremony.[13]

Commercial performance[edit]

The song peaked at number 5 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it Derulo's fifth and Snoop Dogg's fourteenth top 10 single on the chart. As of October 2014, the single has sold 1,663,000 copies in the United States.[14]
