Songfacts®:

  • This is the first single from Atlanta-based rapper and producer Lil Jon's debut solo album, Crunk Rock.
  • The song has a number of links with various "Kellys." It features singer-songwriter R. Kelly and was co-written by Claude Kelly whose other songwriting credits include Kelly Clarkson's "My Life Would Suck Without You." R&B singer Mario also contributes vocals, but his surname is Barrett, not Kelly.
  • Lil Jon told the story of the song to Artist Direct: "I was in the studio with Drumma Boy [Producer]. We were listening to the beat, and I was actually eating some chocolate so I was like, 'You know what? There's no song for the chocolate girls; let's make a song for the chocolate girls.' Basically, I told R. Kelly the concept later on, and he went in and nailed his parts. I had Claude Kelly write the other parts and Mario heard the song and fell in love with it. He did his section, and that's it. The rest is history."
