About Need U Bad

"Need U Bad" is a song performed by American recording artist Jazmine Sullivan from her debut album, Fearless (2008). The song features rapper Missy Elliott, as well as Pepa speaking a Jamaican chant. "Need U Bad" is Sullivan's debut single and the lead single from Fearless. It was first released on May 13, 2008 in the United States by J and Arista Records. The song was co-written by Sullivan in collaboration with Elliott, Cainon Lamb, and Taurian Osbourne. It was produced by Elliott and Lamb. The song uses a sample from Nicholas Taylor Stanton's "Higher Meditation Riddim Version", and Tapper Zukie's "Papa Big Shirt". "Need U Bad" was one of two songs on Fearless where Sullivan collaborated with Elliott and Lamb. Musically, the song was inspired to be different from typical mainstream singles. Featuring prominent elements of reggae, R&B and soul music characteristics, the track was composed in a different style to co-relate with the title of its parent album, Fearless. Lyrically, "Need U Bad" takes reference to a situation when one develops a strong need for one's lover.

I would prove that I could be a better girl
Oh, oh, oh
If you let me back in I would sure enough never
Never let you go again

I was so foolish to ever leave your side
Searching for what was right
Before my eyes it was me
Who didn't realize till it was gone
But now I know I need you in my life

Boy I need you bad as my heartbeat
(Bad like the food I eat)
Bad as the air I breath
(Baby, I want you bad)
I need you bad I can't take this pain
(Bad I can't take this pain)
Boy I'm 'bout to go insane
(Baby, I need you bad)

What I gotta do
(Baby I want you bad)

Do it all for you
(Baby, I need you)

Baby there's nothing I wouldn't do
To get back what we had
When love was true
(Oh, oh, oh)
No lie I'd give up all I got
Just so I could get back in my spot
(Oh)

Boy I need you bad as my heartbeat
(Bad like the food I eat)
Bad as the air I breath
(Baby, I want you bad)
I need you bad I can't take this pain
(Bad I can't take this pain)
Boy I'm 'bout to go insane
(Baby, I need you bad)
I need you
I need you
What I gotta do
(Baby I want you bad)
I need you

Do it all for you
(Baby, I need you)

When you want him so bad
And you gotta get him back
Say oh, oh, oh, oh
(Oh, oh, oh, oh)
Cause if wrong ain't no better two
You are together
Say oh, oh, oh, oh
(Oh, oh, oh, oh)
If you believe in love and you
Can't give him up
Say oh, oh, oh, oh
(Oh, oh, oh, oh)
If there's nothing you won't do
To get back with your boo say
Oh

Boy I need you bad as my heartbeat
(Bad like the food I eat)
Bad as the air I breath
(Baby, I want you bad)

(Bad I can't take this pain)
Boy I'm 'bout to go insane
(Baby, I need you bad)

What I gotta do
(Baby I want you bad)

Do it all for you
(Baby, I need you)
