Slow Dance

Album: In a Perfect World… (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • Hilson co-wrote this song, which describes the ecstasy of desire, with Justin Timberlake. She told Digital Spy that producer Timbaland is "so wishy-washy sometimes." She explained: "He'll hate a song at first and then love it, and then maybe go back to not liking it as much as something else." Hilson added that this track "was one of those songs for him. He liked it a lot at first and said it should be a single, but just as that was about to happen he called it 'bubble bath music'. But now he loves it again and thinks it should be a single! He'll really change it up on you."
