Kanye West and Jamie Foxx revived the 2005 smash ‘Gold Digger’ over the weekend during the Red Granite party at the 64th Annual Festival de Cannes.

The smartly-dressed performers rocked the small stage and had the crowd bouncing along, with their hands and/or digital cameras in the air.

Foxx sang the intro and added harmony, while the Ray Charles sample played in the background behind Kanye’s rhymes. And since this wasn’t a made-for-tv event, West and Foxx were able to perform the uncensored version of the track.

‘Gold Digger’ was rated one of the greatest songs of hip-hop by VH1 and ranked as one of the Top 10 songs of the 2000s by Billboard. The song won Best Rap Solo Performance at the 2006 Grammys, where the hip-hop stars memorably performed the song with a marching band.

Cannes has proven to be the place to be for hot music over the past week, as Lady Gaga wowed the crowd last Wednesday.
