"Belly Dancer (Bananza)" is the title of a single by R&B singer Akon. It reached #30 on the Billboard Hot 100 on October 22, 2005. The song became more popular in the UK, reaching #5, becoming Akon's third Top 5 hit there. The single was originally titled "Bananza (Belly Dancer)" but was changed for the single release. It samples "The Lunatics (Have Taken Over The Asylum)" by Fun Boy Three.
In the music video MTV version of Belly Dancer, Akon goes into a motorbike store and begins daydreaming. The following is the same as the online version: Akon encounters a pretty girl and follows her into a belly dancing club. There, as the song said, he finds ex-gangsters, and they all flirt. In the end, (of the online version), you see him kissing with his chosen girl. The online version begins with Akon trying to fall asleep, and awakening upon the video's end.
The remix features Kardinal Offishall.
