Duck Sauce is collaboration between North American DJs A-Trak and Armand Van Helden. The duo debuted this disco house single at the Miami Winter Music Conference 2010.
The song heavily samples the bassline and riff from Boney M's 1979 hit "Gotta Go Home."
The title namechecks American singer and actress Barbra Streisand whose hits include "The Way We Were
," and "Woman In Love
." However, we think this is the first time the MOR superstar has had a house track named after her!
Among the music artists who appear in the song's music video are Pharrell Williams, Ryan Leslie, Ezra Koenig of Vampire Weekend, Kanye West, Questlove and, Santigold. A fake Barbara Streisand also features.
The picture on the single's cover is a parody of Barbra Streisand's Guilty album artwork.
