    One of the first times a ghetto phrase like this was introduced to the masses.

    #6 Hot 100, #1 R&B (then known as Hot Black Singles), #3 UK. A hood classic to this day. Mel B covered it in 1999 and while that seemed like a good idea on paper, it was a hot mess and irreparably damaged her career.

    Korn’s version is one of the biggest disgraces in the history of popular music.

    Kween should have sampled this instead of “Candy” for “Loverboy”.

    The song is so much fun
    I am not trying to seduce you... Would you like me to seduce you? Is that what you're trying to tell me?

    You know how it is with a car crash you can't help but watch .... well I checked out her version ... you're so right
    It might sound like I'm an unapologetic bitch
    But sometimes you know I gotta call it like it is
