Songfacts®:

  • This crunk song is thematically similar to many songs of its genre, with the singers imploring females to dance provocatively in a club setting.
  • The Ying Yang Twins are the Atlanta-based duo Kaine (Eric Jackson) and D-Roc (D'Angelo Holmes) - they're not related. They can be heard yelling "hanh" on many of their tracks, and even have a complete song called "Hanh!"
  • Regarding the line, "Call that bitch Bo Jangles," Bill "Bojangles" Robinson was a black tap dancer best known for his work in 1930s Shirley Temple movies.
  • The line, "Like Short said, let Bruce Bruce hit it!" is a reference to "Shake that Monkey" by Too $hort, which contains the line, "All them big girls get loose with it, all them skinny girls let Bruce Bruce hit it" (possible reference to Atlanta comedian Bruce Bruce). >>
