  • This ode to oral sex was produced by Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins, who is responsible for producing several of Ciara's past songs, including the 2007 single "Can't Leave 'Em Alone." "I like Rodney for so many reasons," the singer told The Boombox. "He's a friend of mine but musically, he's one of the few music geniuses left that have had the history of the old school seasoning and the modernized way. He has it all in one. That's what makes him very special."

    "Creatively," she continued, "we just have a strong creative connection that it was only right [to work with him on Ciara]. I think it makes the experience so much more fun. We're all about the challenge."
