Song information

The single, produced by Tweet's longtime collaborator Timbaland, peaked at number seven on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and number one on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, becoming her most successful single to date. Some of the success of the song is because it is widely believed to be about female masturbation, although Tweet has said in interviews that the song is not about female masturbation.[citation needed] Elliott and Jay-Z reference this song during the track "Wake Up", from the former's 2003 album This Is Not a Test!, when Jay-Z raps, "I wanna feel myself like Tweet".

The English electropop band Ladytron covered the song on their 2003 compilation album Softcore Jukebox.
