Album: The Truth (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • This ballad penned by Ledisi with her longtime collaborator and producer Rex Rideout centers on a lady taking the lead in the bedroom. "I'm known for my ballads, but this is my booty song," Ledisi told The Boombox. "Sometimes we should celebrate that wiggle [that] I learned in dance class. [And] I wanted to find out what men wanted in the bedroom."
