The Boss

Album: Trilla (2008)
Charted: 17
  • Ross told MTV News about this song, which features T-Pain: "That's the biggest boss! That's the second single from my album Trilla. [The song] is the Florida connect - me and T-Pain. It was overdue, so we got it in. J.R. Rotem (of Rihanna 'S.O.S. (Rescue Me)' fame) produced it. He's got that quality West Coast production. Once I got my verses, I reached out to Pain. I told him to touch that chorus and fill it in, and he made that movie. It's a big record."
  • In the same week that Ross' Trilla topped the Billboard album chart, dance-pop artist Kristine W reached #1on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart. Coincidentally, her chart-topper was a cover of a Diana Ross song, also titled "The Boss."
