Songfacts®:

  • A track from I See Stars debut full-length album 3-D, "Sing This" is a very high-energy song with more electro elements and less of a hardcore feel than their later work. Fittingly, the song takes place at a dance club and deal with the courtship ritual.
  • Bizzy Bone of Bone Thugs-n-Harmony blasts out a verse in the middle of this song. If you have no idea what he's saying, don't worry, the band doesn't either. "There was a lot of empty space on the track, so we thought it'd be cool to get a rapper up on it," ISS lead singer Devin Oliver told us. "Our label just hit us up and said, 'Hey, Bizzy Bone is down to do it.' We were like, 'Let him throw down on it,' and he ran with it. He was working with our label at the time on a little side project that he was doing, so they threw the idea out and he liked the track. He laid down a verse and you can barely understand what he's saying, but it's pretty cool.
