Every time you swipe through your TikTok videos, you may have encountered suspenseful music, and you’ve been wanting to know its name. It has become a trend on TikTok for users to use music without revealing its name. After spending about two years digging through TikTok music (or so it felt), you’ve finally uncovered the mysterious music you were after: it turns out, it’s “I Got 5 On It.” The catchy part? They’ve basically slowed down the original!
Now, here’s the interesting part: the music from “I Got 5 On It” isn’t new. While Generation Z might believe they’ve uncovered a hidden gem, the same background music was used in “Puff Daddy – Satisfy You.” If we delve deeper, the background instrumental track in “Satisfy You” is actually a sample from the original song ‘Why You Treat Me So Bad.
Now, if you slow down ‘Club Nouveau – Why You Treat Me So Bad,’ you’ll notice that the music was used in P. Diddy’s ‘Satisfy You,’ which was then further sampled in ‘I Got 5 On It.’ This illustrates the evolution of the music. Nobody would have thought that a song from Club Nouveau’s 1987 single could resurface in this way.
