About Age Ain't Nothing But a Number

"Age Ain't Nothing but a Number" is a song by American singer Aaliyah from her debut studio album of the same name (1994). The song was written and produced by R. Kelly and lyrically the song is about a young girl wanting to date an older man. Containing a lyrical interpolation from the song "What You Won't Do For Love by Bobby Caldwell the "soulful" ballad opens with a guitar-piano interplay, with Aaliyah's spoken voice noting her daily diary entry. Critically the song was panned by many critics because of the songs controversial message about dating someone older. Blackground and Jive released "Age Ain't Nothing but a Number" as the third single (and final single in the United States) from the album on December 6, 1994. Commercially the song performed poorly on the US Billboard Hot 100 peaking at number 75 on the chart. The song became Aaliyah's first single not to top the charts with her first two singles peaking within the top 10. On the US Hot R&B/Hip-Hop songs chart the song fared better peaking within the top 40 at number 5 on the week ending on December 24, 1994. Internationally the song performed moderately well peaking within the top 40 of the UK Official chart at number 32. The song experienced even greater success on the UK's Dance and R&B charts peaking within the top 20 at number 19 and 6 respectively.

Age ain't nothing but a number
Throwing down ain't nothing but a thing
This something I have for you it'll never change
Age ain't nothing but a number
Throwing down ain't nothing but a thing
This something I have for you it'll never change

Here I am, and there you are
Your eyes are calling me to your heart
All you gotta do is knock, I'll let you in
And we will feel the passion that flows within
I don't mean to be bold, but I gotta let you know
I gotta thang for you and I can't let go

Age ain't nothing but a number
Throwing down ain't nothing but a thing
This something I have for you it'll never change
Age ain't nothing but a number
Throwing down ain't nothing but a thing
This something I have for you it'll never change

Take my hand, and come with me
Let me show you to ecstasy
Boy be brave don't be afraid
Cause tonight we're gonna go all the way
Don't mean to be bold, gotta let you know
I gotta thing for you, and I can't let go my

Age ain't nothing but a number
Throwing down ain't nothing but a thing
This something I have for you it'll never change
Age ain't nothing but a number
Throwing down ain't nothing but a thing
This something I have for you it'll never change

"So what's up, here I am, reach
Baby Come here
Age ain't nothin' but a number
I don't mean to be bold, but I gotta let you know
Liyah's got a thing for you and I can't let go ooh my

Age ain't nothing but a number
Throwing down ain't nothing but a thing
This something I have for you it'll never change
Age ain't nothing but a number
Throwing down ain't nothing but a thing
This something I have for you it'll never change
