Matoma's viral smash 'Old Thing Back' gets a sunny video

Posted on

Tom Stræte Lagergren, the Norwegian tropical house DJ, music producer, and pianist who makes music as Matoma, breathed new life into The Notorious B.I.G’s “Want That Old Thing Back” (which was released via Bad Boy Records on Greatest Hits, 2007) last year with his remix, “Old Thing Back.” Still featuring Ja Rule and Ralph Tresvant alongside Biggie’s lyrics but with a flourishing backing, it’s not hard to see how it blew up for the summer. 

Just in time for summer 2015 (we see what you’re doing), Matoma is returning with the track’s official music video. “This was my first-ever music video and it was just so much fun! Shooting in the sun in Miami with some friends and a bunch of other really nice people, we ended up having a proper party and it feels so right for ‘Old Thing Back,'” he says. Miami? Party? Grab a bikini—EW is premiering the video below.
