This stripped-down Soul jam was released as the seventh promotional single from Justin's #MusicMondays series, a 10-week drive in which he unveiled a new tune every Sunday at midnight. The song finds him collaborating with R. Kelly as the pair share boasts about putting it down with their ladies. The Chicago crooner told Vibe magazine: "[Justin] just called me to do a song and it's hot. He wanted to go and do some R&B stuff so we got together and did that."
The song is the raunchiest cut that Bieber has recorded to date. It finds him promising to give his girl the "best you've ever had" and describing all of the places he would like to put her down, which include the:
"Door to the wall Coffee table girl get ready From the stove to the countertop Dining room table."
Kelly heats it up further on the second verse where he promises to be her "dope man in the bedroom."
Justin Bieber told The Hollywood Reporter of the song: "I was going for a modern Boyz II Men sound," he said. "I'm really influenced by R&B, but I love everybody -- from Michael Jackson to The Beatles to, like, Led Zeppelin and Korn."
Kelly told The Sun about this collaboration with Justin: "He's coming over into the R&B world and I welcomed him like 'what up!' We happened to be in the same hotel one day, and we played each other music for like two hours, we talked about getting together and two months later we did it."
Jay-Z's 2012 "Glory" features his daughter Blue Ivy Carter's cries and coos. At less than two days old, she became the youngest ever credited artist to feature on a Billboard chart when the song debuted on R&B/Hip-Hop Songs at #74.
To the younger crowd, "A Little Less Conversation" is one of the most popular Elvis Presley songs. Peaking at #50 when it was released in 1968, it got new life in the '00s when it was used in the movies Lilo And Stitch and Ocean's Eleven.
When "Nothin' On You" reached #1 on the Hot 100, B.o.B became the first American act whose name is a palindrome to top the chart. The other two who did so prior to the Atlanta rapper were both Scandinavian groups - ABBA and A-Ha.
