About Milkshake

"Milkshake" is a song by American recording artist Kelis and the lead single from her third studio album, Tasty. It was originally offered to Britney Spears for her fourth studio album In the Zone, but was rejected and given to Kelis instead. The song was released in the United States on August 27, 2003, by Star Trak and Arista Records, and internationally on November 24. It was written and produced by The Neptunes, a duo that had made the majority of Kelis' songs in the past. According to Kelis, "milkshake" in the song is used as a metaphor for "something that makes women special." The song is noted for its euphemistic chorus and low beat R&B sound. The song peaked at number three on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart in December 2003, becoming Kelis' best charting single in the country to this day. Outside the United States, the song topped the charts in the Republic of Ireland, and peaked inside the top ten of the charts in Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. "Milkshake" was certified gold in the United States, where it has sold 883,000 paid downloads. The song was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Urban/Alternative Performance in 2004.

My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard
And they're like, it's better than yours
Damn right it's better than yours
I can teach you, but I have to charge
My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard
And they're like, it's better than yours
Damn right it's better than yours
I can teach you, but I have to charge

I know you want it
The thing that makes me
What the guys go crazy for
They lose their minds
The way I wind
I think it's time

Warm it up
La la, la la, la

Damn right it's better than yours
I can teach you, but I have to charge

Oh, once you get involved
Everyone will look this way, so
You must maintain your charm
Same time maintain your halo
Just get the perfect blend
Plus what you have within
Then next his eyes'll squint
Then he's picked up your scent

Damn right it's better than yours
I can teach you, but I have to charge
