'Thong Song' singer living good life in Twin Cities suburb; Twitter reacts

“No thongs out here!” Strange but true: @OfficialSisQo now lives in Maple Grove.

What do Maple Grove, Minnesota and rapper Sisqo have in common?

They're both trending on Twitter, because word's out that the "Thong Song" singer lives in the quiet Twin Cities suburb.

Northwest Community Television, which serves several metro-area towns, interviewed Sisqo (real name Mark Andrews, according to AllMusic) about why he's calling Maple Grove home these days. You can watch it below:


Sisqo tells the station he enjoys his quiet, distraction-free neighborhood, while his girlfriend said Minnesota was an ideal spot for the couple and their children because her family lives in the state.

But it may be a little less quiet from now on, at least on social media.

On Tuesday, Twin Cities music service The Current posted a feature on Northwest Community Television's story, and a lot of surprised locals shared their excitement on Twitter:
