The single went on to achieve worldwide success and was eventually certified three times platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
The song’s success resulted in Ciara being dubbed the “First Lady of Crunk&B,” a genre comprised of classic R&B and and up-tempo “crunk” music.

“It’s definitely platonic, I wish it wasn’t,” says Songz.
