The low-key hoodrat anthem of summer '96! It's like a TLC/Dr. Dre hybrid, but done Toni Braxton style - it gives me LIFE. :cry:

Literally just tweeted about this.

If there's a sexier song, I've yet to hear it.

The whole Secrets album is sensational, this being the highlight.

Agreed, this song is the sexxx. So soft and sensual.
I think the title track from 'The Heat' album is another sex anthem haha.

I like it but it's get a little boring for me because it doesn't have a big pay off. It sounds best when it's loud.

Love the video. One of my first memories of MTV.

What an underrated record, Toni's low vocals is so sexy!

The video captures the 1990s so well! :lol: :lol:

I've been playing this quite a bit recently. It's aged well!

Worth noting that I also discovered this through The Album Cup.

I think I'd heard it before but I just loved the entire Secrets album after TAC.

A classic 90s R&B jam, Toni was the most seductive mama in the game.

I love all the remixes to this, especially the Classic Edit where the background singers were belting out high parts! :o :o 8-)

Always loved it. This was quite a risque song for the mid 90s standard.

I can imagine you
Touching my private parts
With just the thought of you
I can't help but touch myself

I can't believe she didn't have that much songs like this on Secrets.
