Ghetto

Songfacts®:

  • This Crunk-influenced number was produced by American R&B singer and producer Tank and features Snoop Dogg.
  • Rowland said on her record label's website: "Ghetto is about good girls who dig bad boys and it's one of my favorites. As soon as Tank played it, I knew and recorded it in an hour. 'Ghetto' is just so laid back and that's why I had to have Snoop. He just gives it that something. I like it when a song can make you feel good."
