Songs On 12 Play

Songfacts®:

  • Chris Brown links up with Trey Songz on this cut to pay homage to the pied piper of raunchy R&B: R. Kelly. The song title is taken Kelly's brazen 1993 debut album 12 Play, which contained a dozen tracks about seducing women. Many of this song's lyrics are key phrases from such Kelly sex jams as "Bump N' Grind," "Ignition" and "R&B Thug."
