“The Way I Are (Dance with Somebody)” is a song recorded by American singer Bebe Rexha featuring American rapper Lil Wayne, from her upcoming third extended play. It was released on 19 May 2017, by Warner Bros. Records as the lead single from the EP. The single was leaked a week before it’s release, though it was deleted soon after.
“The Way I Are (Dance with Somebody)” is a pop song. The song samples Whitney Houston’s single “I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)”.
Mike Wass of Idolator gave the song a positive review, calling the single “instantly hummable and sweet relief from the endless stream of left-of-center pop songs on radio.”
