Gimme Dat

Album: Basic Instinct (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • This frenetic jam is the second single by American R&B singer Ciara, from her fourth studio album, titled Basic Instinct. Tricky Stewart and Soundz produced the song.
  • Reporter Ryan Brockington said of this song in The New York Post: "From my calculations she spits the words 'gimmie that bass' over 30 times and tells you that she will indeed 'bring it back and take it back' a good 16 times. The 'it' I believe she is referring to is her rump shaker and that 'bass' is what will make her 'bring it.'"
