She Don't Wanna Man

Album: Asleep in the Bread Aisle (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • This track was influenced by Roth's two older sisters and the rapper's distaste for disrespecting women. He explained to MTV News: "It's an ode to my girls that just want to go out and have a good time and don't want some sleazy dude all over them."
  • The song features R&B singer-songwriter Keri Hilson. Roth explained to MTV News that when the song was being put together, "we pretty much put together your dream-team list of artists that you would love to collaborate with on that song." He added: "And Keri was a friend that was in Atlanta with us, and we had met early on, and we were talking about working together. So when we put together our dream list, she was on the top of it. We sent [the song] over to her, and she absolutely murdered it."
  • This was released as the third single from rapper Asher Roth's album, Asleep in the Bread Aisle. (Check out our interview with Asher Roth.)
