The 5 Seconds to Cash song for Friday, January 11, 2019 was "Desert Rose" by Sting.

Sting, of course, used to be the lead singer of The Police, but has many solo hits as well, "Dessert Rose" being one of them.

The pot was at $380 and the caller did not name the song correctly, therefore, the pot will now be $400 on Monday, January 14, 2019.

"Desert Rose" features Cheb Mami, a popular Algerian raï singer.

The song was from Sting's 1999 album, Brand New Day. 

The song peaked at #17 on Billboard Hot 100, #5 on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play, and #3 Hot Adult Top 40 Tracks chart.

The song was also used in Jaguar commercials in 2000.

Fun fact: the song is a story about Adam's agony after being exiled from Eden. Eve is the 'desert rose.' Who knew?
