One Night Stand

Album: No Boys Allowed (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • No Boys Allowed actually does allow boys. The track listing mentions appearances by Rick Ross, Nelly, J.Cole, Kanye West, Timbaland and on this steamy track, Chris Brown. Hilson explained the album is a deeply personal project designed to bring women to their feet. She said, "It's not about excluding men. It's more about women understanding that there comes a time in your life when you want a man. A real man. A grown up. Not a boy. And that's not a bad thing."
  • This song about casual sex was reportedly intended to be a sequel to Brown's 2007 minor hit "Take You Down."
