There's no escaping Silentó's "Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)" and the series of dances that it instructs listeners to do. Lord knows that we wish we could get away from it, but it's EVERYWHERE. However, there's a new rendition of the song from Anthony Hamilton and his band dubbed "The #HamFam Version" that has us wanting to pass around a collection plate, crack open our bibles and catch the holy ghost like we're in church because that's where he's taking us.
In a 1 minute 10 second video posted to Anthony's Facebook page, that has since gone viral, he's seen in rehearsal with The Extravaganza Band and The HamilTones. Instead of rehearing his hits such as "Comin' From Where I'm From" or "The Point of It All," however, AHam sings "Watch me Whip, watch me Nae Nae" like he's the star soloist in the church choir. Hamilton's falsetto is on fleek while the keyboard player, bassist, guitarist and drummer bring us that old time religion with their playing. Anthony's melodious voice, The Hamiltones' harmonies and the churchy ad libs by J.Vito plus his Whip take this over the top and show how talented, creative and foolish Hamilton and his crew are and how they can totally own a song as well as sing ANYTHING.
"The #HamFam Version" of "Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)" sounds like Sunday, grown ass men and macaroni and cheese (a few of our favorite things) and is the only version we want to hear from here on out. Have a church fan handy, and press play to watch these crazy cats break it all the way down.
