Naughty Girl

Album: Dangerously In Love (2003)
Charted: 10 3

Songfacts®:

  • This samples the 1975 Donna Summer song Love To Love You Baby and borrows heavily from the 1982 song "Nasty Girl" by The Vanity 6. Like those 2 songs, this is explicitly sexual.
  • Beyoncé enjoyed massive success with her group Destiny's Child, and Dangerously In Love was her first solo album. This was going to be the first single, but it was pushed back in favor of "Crazy In Love." >>
