About In the Dark

"In the Dark" is a song performed by American singer Dev. It was written by Dev alongside The Cataracs, who produced it for Dev's debut studio album, The Night the Sun Came Up (2011). The song was released as the album's second single on April 25, 2011, through Universal Motown. "In the Dark" came about when Dev wanted to make a sexy song to show that she is a grown woman. She collaborated with American rapper Flo Rida on an official remix as she believed she would enjoy the remix when hearing it on the radio. "In the Dark" is a dance-pop song with a saxophone hook and influences of Eurodance, Latin and jazz music. The lyrics emphasize sex drives and letting the sensation of touch fully take over from sight. The song received generally positive reviews from music critics, who highlighted its production and the saxophone line. However, critics were divided regarding the song's lyrical content; some referred it to as sexy, while others dismissed its metaphors. "In the Dark" enjoyed commercial success in the United States, peaking at number 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and the summit of Hot Dance Club Songs. The song achieved its highest national peak in Slovakia, where it reached number one. Elsewhere, the song peaked in the top forty in Canada, Australia, Denmark, Ireland, Scotland and the United Kingdom. The song's music video features shots of black-painted hands that touch Dev while she is standing naked. According to Dev, the inspiration behind the video was to reflect the sexy and dark aspects of the song, and the initial idea was to create a Tim Burton-inspired feel.

On my waist, through my hair
Think about it when you touch me there 
Close my eyes, here you are all alone dancing in the dark

Tell me baby if it's wrong 
To let my hands do what they want? 
Late at night I pretend we are 
Dance dance dancing in the dark

Dancing in the dark
Oh la la oh la la oh la la 
Dancing in the dark

When you work on me
Open my body up and do some surgery
Now that you got me up I wanna taste it taste it
And see those pocket aces
I wanna see who you are

I got a sex drive to push the start
I got a sex drive to push the start
I got a sex drive to push the start

On my waist, through my hair
Think about it when you touch me there
Close my eyes, here you are 
Dance dance dancing in the dark!

Oh la la oh la la oh la la 
Dancing in the dark
Oh la la oh la la oh la la 
Dancing in the dark

I love to flirt to see
I'm only talking to you if you wanna surf my seas
Now that you got me boy 
You know you better spice it flavor it get it right; savor it 

Wanna see who you are
Got a sex drive to push the start
I got a sex drive to push the start
I got a sex drive to push the start

On my waist, through my hair
Think about it when you touch me there
Close my eyes, here you are (here you are)
All alone dancing in the dark

Tell me baby if its wrong? 
To let my hands do what they want
Late at night I pretend we are 

Dance dance dancing in the dark 
(oh la la)

Tell me baby if its wrong
Dancing in the dark
To let my hands do what they want
Dancing in the dark! (it's the Cataracs)
Oh la la oh la la oh la la 
Dancing in the dark
Oh la la oh la la oh la la 
Dancing in the dark
