G I R L's most explicit sex jam, this disconcertingly titled song (pronounced "goosh") finds Pharrell threatening a paramour to "leave those panties in flames." There are times where I get a little bit cute," Skateboard P had warned before he started playing the album at the listening party. "But I should be allowed to do that."
The song's hook of "Light that ass on fire," is a repeat of Pharrell's line on his 2003 Busta Rhymes collaboration "Light Ya Ass on Fire."
"Crank That (Soulja Boy)" was the most successful digital track of 2007 in the US with 2,909,000 downloads. On January 6, 2008 it became the first song ever to sell 3 million digital copies in the States.
