Songfacts®:

  • This 1970s Soul-sounding track samples the melody of Michael Jackson's "Off The Wall."
  • This was produced by Stargate. Carey said of working with the Norwegian production team: "When I did 'That Chick' with Stargate, I was so excited to be in the room with Stargate because (Executive producer) L.A. Reid had said he really wanted me to get in a room with them and I am a fan of their work and they were such cool guys, such really talented, truly good people."
  • Carey added in the same interview: "It's sort of that song you want to listen to as a girl, you know, you wanna look at yourself in the mirror and go [sings] 'I'm that chick you like.' It's like preparation for a night out of feeling fly."

  • This appears on Carey's 11th studio album, E=MC2, which was originally going to be titled That Chick after this song. The new title, a playful reference to Albert Einstein's mass-energy equivalence formula, implies the album is a new-and-improved sequel to its predecessor, The Emancipation Of Mimi, with E=MC2 standing for Emancipation of Mariah Carey to the second power. Both albums debuted at #1 in the US.
