Songfacts®:

  • This female-empowerment anthem features T-Pain on the hook. The rapper told MTV News about the collaboration: "The record came together basically with me and Ciara working for days in the studio, and we got pressured to make a song. The one we finished was 'Go Girl.'"
  • Ciara told MTV News that the song is all about "someone that's strong, determined and independent."
  • This was a bonus track on the Japanese edition of Fantasy Ride.
  • In the song's music video, Ciara introduced a futuristic, robotic character called Super C, who became a part of the promotion for Fantasy Ride and featured in the album's artwork. Ciara explained in promotional materials that Super C, "represents the inner strength and drive that helps me overcome obstacles. My entire life I have had people tell me that I cannot be something and it has not been easy. The Super C in me turns the negative into a positive. This side of me helps me do that and persevere."
