About Bump N' Grind

"Bump n' Grind" is a song by American R&B singer R. Kelly. It was released on January 25, 1994 as the second single from his debut solo studio album 12 Play (1993). The track became a number one single on the US Billboard Hot 100 (temporarily interrupting the six-week run of Ace of Base's "The Sign"), and it also spent twelve weeks at number one on the US Hot R&B Songs chart as Kelly's third number-one R&B hit, becoming the longest-running number-one of 1994 in the US, and the longest-running R&B single at that time. The song also reached number eight on the UK Singles Chart, following the massive success of his previous single, "She's Got That Vibe" (which was actually a re-release). Kelly released three versions of "Bump n' Grind": the original album version and two remixes. The original LP version was made available for airplay on urban and Top 40 pop radio stations alike at first, but eventually the "Old School" remix was issued shortly and gained massive airplay on urban, adult R&B/soul and rhythmic radio stations. Kelly also released the "Bump n' Grind (How I Feel It Extended Mix)", which was used in the original video for the song. This version received major play on urban radio as well. Some stations still play the original version to this day.

My mind is tellin' me no but my body, my body's tellin' me yes
Baby, I don't want to hurt nobody
But there is something that I must confess (to you)

I don't see nothing wrong with a little bump and grind
I don't see nothing wrong, hey baby, hey
I don't see nothing wrong (I don't see nothing wrong) with a little bump and grind
I don't see nothing wrong, hey

See I know just what you want and I know just what you need girl
So baby bring your body to me (bring your body here)
I'm not fooling around with you, baby
Baby my love is true (with you) with you is where I want to be
Girl, you need someone, someone like me to satisfy your every needs

I don't see nothing wrong with a little bump and grind
I don't see nothing wrong, baby, baby, I don't see
I don't see nothing wrong (I don't see nothing wrong) with a little bump and grind
I don't see nothing wrong, baby hey

You say he's not treating you right
Lady spend the night now
I'll love you like you need to be loved (girl why don't you try some of me)
No need to look no more because I've opened up my door
You'll never, you'll never want another love, baby you'll never find another me
You see you need someone, someone like me, yeah to make love to you baby constantly

I don't see nothing wrong with a little bump and grind
I don't see nothing wrong, oh
I don't see nothing wrong with a little bump and grind
I don't see nothing wrong, baby, baby, alright

I don't see nothing wrong, I don't see nothing wrong, with a little bump and grind
I don't see nothing wrong, I don't see, I don't see nothing wrong
I don't see nothing wrong, no, no, no with a little bump and grind
I don't see nothing wrong, nothing wrong, nothing wrong, nothing wrong
I don't see nothing wrong with a little bump and grind
