Yolanda Be Cool – We No Speak Americano (Official Video)

One of the most popular songs out right now, it features a sample of the famous Italian artist Renato Carosone’s “”Tu vuò fà l’americano”, which sounds very similar, but with a much slower tempo.  It is not only popular on radio stations of many genres, but it is also famous in dance clubs for its swing house style.

The video itself attempts to replicate the look of old, black and white, silent films.  A man tries to win over a girl he has seen in town, but ends up being unintentionally saved by her in the end of the film.  All around the world, from the US to the UK, to everywhere in between that keeps track of radio plays and popularity, this song has ranked #1 in almost every one of these countries and has gone platinum in six different countries based purely on sales.  If you hadn’t heard it or heard about it, now you have.
