Songfacts®:

  • This erotic club-pop track is the second single from Christina Aguilera's fourth full-length English-language studio album, Bionic. The track features New York rapper Nicki Minaj, and was written by Aguilera and Minaj with Claude Kelly and "Not Myself Tonight" collaborators Polow da Don and Ester Dean.
  • This song is one of several on Bionic to contain raunchy lyrics. Aguilera told The Sun that becoming a mother in early 2008 hasn't tamed her - in fact it has had the opposite effect. She explained: "I just feel sexier since motherhood. It's a new confidence you get after giving birth. Your body goes through so much. Women are just bionic, we are the creators of life."
