It was recorded by Brazilian band Cangaia de Jegue and then covered by many other regional Brazilian bands like Garota Safada, Arreio de Ouro, Estakazero, Forró Sacode, and Saia Rodada. In 2011, it was popularized by Brazilian singer Michel Teló, becoming an international hit.[2][3][4] Teló also released an English-language version, "If I Catch You".

LyricsEdit

The lyrics begin with two cries of "Nossa! Nossa!" short for "nossa senhora" - Our Lady, the Virgin Mary, an equivalent of "Wow!" in Brazilian Portuguese.[5] Then Assim você me mata, "You kill me," a common exclamation.[6] Then "ai, se eu te pego, ai, ai, se eu te pego." - "Ooh, if I catch you."[7] The verse then repeats with "Delícia, delícia" instead of "Nossa, nossa." The third verse of the song is the only verse with a narrative text: describing a Saturday night, a crowd beginning to dance, and summoning courage to speak to the most beautiful girl. Verses 4 and 5 repeat the simple exclamations of verses 1 and 2.

In popular cultureEdit

Popularity in sportEdit

The song is especially popular among footballers. It was first danced by Brazilian player Neymar who initially appeared on a video dancing to the song "Ai Se Eu Te Pego". Many other videos of the same player emerged later leading to its huge popularity in Brazil.

The song became extremely popular in Spain and all over Europe after Real Madrid players Marcelo and Cristiano Ronaldo celebrated a goal dancing to the choreography of the song.[116] Playing in a La Liga match, the dance was performed by the two players after Ronaldo scored the first goal against Málaga on 22 October 2011. The popularity was such that on 12 January 2012, Michel Teló was invited to the Real Madrid training ground and posed for pictures with Marcelo and Ronaldo.[citation needed] The goal celebration has been performed by many other footballers across Europe.[citation needed] At UFC 153 in Brazil, fighter Dave Herman used the song as his entrance music.

Muay Thai kickboxer Sudsakorn Sor Klinmee danced and sang along to "Ai Se Eu Te Pego" in the ring following his win over Marco Piqué at Yokkao Extreme 2012 in Milan on 21 January 2012. The mixed martial artists Fabrício Werdum and Dave Herman have used the song as their entrance music. Werdum walked out to it before facing Mike Russow at UFC 147 in Rio de Janeiro on 23 June 2012, while Herman entered to the song ahead of his match with Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira at UFC 153 on 13 October 2012, also in Rio.
