About I'm a Slave 4 U

"I'm a Slave 4 U" is a song recorded by American singer Britney Spears for her third and eponymous studio album, Britney (2001). It was released on September 24, 2001 through Jive Records as the lead single off the record. The track was written and produced by Chad Hugo and Pharrell Williams of The Neptunes. "I'm a Slave 4 U" garnered mixed reception from music critics. Some critics argued it was the singer's most mature sound at the time compared to her previous singles, while other noticed the song's attempt to leave behind Spears' girl next door image and said her vocals were unnatural. "I'm a Slave 4 U" achieved commercial success, peaking inside the top-ten in almost every country that it charted on. However, the song peaked at number 27 on the Billboard Hot 100 and at number 85 in Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, both being the lowest chart positions of the single worldwide. A music video for the single, which was directed by Francis Lawrence, was released along with the single released. It features Spears dancing in a sauna. Spears' now iconic performance of the song at the 2001 MTV Video Music Awards in New York City was highly criticized by animal rights group PETA for the inclusion of exotic animals. Spears performed the song on every tour since its release, including the promotional The M+M's Tour.

I know I may be young
But I've got feelings, too
And I need to do what I feel like doing
So let me go and just listen

All you people look at me like I'm a little girl
Well, did you ever think it'd be okay for me to step into this world
Always sayin' little girl don't step into the club
Well, I'm just tryin' to find out why 'cause dancin's what I love

Get it, get it, get it, get it, oh
Get it, get it, get it, get it, oh
Get it, get it, get it, get it, oh

I know I may come off quiet, may come off shy
But I feel like talking, feel like dancing when I see this guy
What's practical is logical, what the hell who cares?
All I know is I'm so happy when you're dancin' there

I'm a slave for you
I cannot hold it, I cannot control it
I'm a slave for you
I won't deny it, I'm not tryin' to hide it

Baby, don't you wanna dance up on me
To another time and place
Oh baby, don't you wanna dance up on me
Leaving behind my name and age

Like that
You like it
Yeah, now watch me

Get it, get it, get it, get it, oh
Get it, get it, get it, get it, oh
Get it, get it, get it, get it, oh

I really wanna dance, tonight with you
I really wanna do, what you want me to
I really wanna dance, tonight with you
I really wanna do, what you want me to

Baby, don't you wanna dance up on me
To another time and place
Oh baby, don't you wanna dance up on me
Leaving behind my name and age

I'm a slave for you
I cannot hold it, I cannot control it
I'm a slave for you
I will not deny it, I'm not tryin' to hide it, baby

Get it, get it, get it, get it, oh
Get it, get it, get it, get it, oh
Get it, get it, get it, get it, oh

Get it, get it, get it, get it, oh
Get it, get it, get it, get it, oh
Get it, get it, get it, get it, oh

I'm a slave for you
I cannot hold it, I cannot control it
I'm a slave for you
I won't deny it, I'm not tryin' to hide it

Like that?
