Songfacts®:

  • This club song is a single from Nelly's sixth album Nelly 5.0. It features guest appearances from Akon and T-Pain, and production by Dr. Luke (Kesha, Katy Perry).
  • The song's music video was directed by Marc Klasfeld and finds Nelly, Akon and T-Pain converging on an underground fight club, rapping to the camera as two girls duke it out in the background. "The concept of the video is like Fight Club mixed with Bring It On," explained Klasfeld to Rap-Up.com. "It's this underground club. There's this crazy movie called Thirteen that it's kind of based on, and in this, the girls are dance-fighting against one another, and it's this select environment, this super-private event that only a couple people get to go to and bet on these girls dancing."
