Then a little over a minute into the song, it breaks down into one of the grooviest R&B dance beats we've ever heard. This is one of those "sing in the hairbrush in front of the mirror" kind of dance jams that always makes us feel like a strong, confident woman afterwards.[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=liT8cILFAV4

Another one of those songs where the chorus is forever implanted in our heads, there was a little debate over whether this was actually considered a dance song.

We vividly remember this being the song that the DJ pulled out at the end of the night when everyone was cooling down. Maybe we were all slow dancing, but we were dancing.
