Show Out

Album: The Juice (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • This is the second single from American rapper Roscoe Dash's debut album, The Juice and the follow-up to his breakthrough hit, "All the Way Turnt Up." He explained to MTV News the difference between the two songs: "'Turnt Up' was kind of like my get-your-foot-in-the-door record and video, and I kinda, like, put that motivational message into 'Turnt Up,' "he said. "But 'Show Out' is kinda like that have-fun, wild-out, it's-the-summertime, do-what-you-want-to-do type of record."
  • Dash revealed to MTV News that R&B star Chris Brown initially tried to get on the song. "I was like, 'Man, don't even worry about the 'Show Out' record,' because we not gonna push a remix until it's peaked anyway. It's gonna take time for all of that," Roscoe said. "I'd rather get something that's gonna be quick that we can go ahead and throw out there early."
  • The song's music video, which features Dash with various expensive cars and bikes and riding a jet ski, was as enjoyable to shoot as it looks. "It didn't even seem like we were shooting a video," Dash said. "It really was like we was just out there having fun and the cameras just happened to be there."
