"Yeah Yeah" is a song by British house music duo Bodyrox, written as a collaboration with Jon Pearn , Nick Bridges and Luciana. It was popularised in clubs by British producer D. Ramirez's remix, which became the backing for the radio edit, featuring Luciana. Released in October 2006, the song reached number two on the UK Singles Chart, becoming both Bodyrox's and Luciana's highest-charting single. It also charted in several other countries, including Australia, Belgium, Finland, Ireland and the Netherlands. In addition, it topped the UK Dance Chart and peaked at number 15 on the US Billboard Dance Airplay chart in March 2007.

Music video[edit]

The music video is available in both a censored and an uncensored form. Both versions feature Luciana and an assortment of young adults in a dingy room. Euphemisms including the connecting of microphone cables, spilling of milk are subtly woven into both versions of the video, and they conclude with Luciana dousing the room with petrol and sparking a cigarette lighter.

As the music continues, the young adults become increasingly aroused and start to make out with each other if in pairs, or rub themselves if alone;[1] in the uncensored version of the video, the behaviour extends into crotch clutching and bared breast fondling.[2]

Other versions[edit]

The song is used as the sampled background track in Cascada's 2011 single "San Francisco". The song is used in the Jaime Kennedy movie Kickin' It Old Skool during the hip hop dance challenge scene between the Misfitz and the Iced Cole crews.

2017 version[edit]

In 2016, Dave Audé released an updated version of "Yeah Yeah", this time billed as "Yeah Yeah 2017" and credited as Luciana and Dave Audé. This version reached number one on Billboard's Dance Club Songs chart the week of 25 February 2017.[21]

In a 16 February 2017 interview with Billboard, Luciana explained how she and Audé came up with the idea to remake the song. "I feel very blessed and grateful right now. I am literally doing high kicks around my kitchen table as we speak! 'Yeah Yeah' is the track that started everything for me. I have always felt so passionate about it, so when Dave Audé said to me, 'Let's do a new 2017 version,' I knew it had to be right, and I think we nailed it. This No. 1 feels like the icing on the cake for me."[22]
