"Move Shake Drop" is a song by DJ Laz released as the first single from his 2008 studio album Category 6. It features Flo Rida , Casely & Pitbull.

The song samples Benny Benassi's track "Satisfaction" for as the background beat for the song.[1]. The song was produced by The Diaz Brothers, and was written by Luis and Hugo Diaz (The Diaz Brothers), Lazaro Mendez (DJ Laz), and Armando Christian Pérez (Pitbull).

In U.S., the song peaked at #56 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #42 on the Billboard Pop 100 chart for the week of May 24, 2008.[2]

The song proved very popular in European tourist resorts being played in many clubs.

Rumors have circulated that the producers of this song did not have permission to use Benassi's original sample, thus the contemporary American radio edit had the sample of "Satisfaction" removed, replacing it with a similar-sounding electronic scratch sound, only using different notes and tones.

The song is featured in a television advertisement for the 8th season of Dancing with the Stars.
