Oops! Missy Says Tweet’s Hit Song Was Never About Masturbation




When Tweet dropped “Oops (Oh My)” in 2002 it was an instant hit. The combination of impeccable vocals and a sultry beat was a treat for the ears, but it was the risque lyrics that really set the song apart in a way that was new and refreshing. But now, almost 20 years later, we are learning that the lyrics didn’t mean what we thought they did.

To us, “Oops” was a self-pleasure anthem — a musical masturbation guide, if you will. The titillating track was produced by Timbaland and featured guest vocals by Missy Elliott … also another surefire recipe for a hit. In the bridge, Tweet and Missy go back and forth singing:

Umm I was looking so good I couldn’t reject myself
(I looked over to the left)
Umm I was feeling so good I had to touch myself
(I looked over to the left)
Umm I was eyein’ my thighs butter pecan brown
(I looked over to the left)
Umm comin’ outta my shirt and then the skirt came down

But now, it’s Elliott telling us that those words were an appreciation for melanin, not masturbation.

Look, Missy has no reason to lie, so we believe her — however, she has to agree, the lyrics were a bit misleading right?

Clearly, the musical chemistry between Missy and Tweet was undeniably, and luckily we’ll be getting more from them. When we talked to Tweet just last month, the songstress said she’s been in the lab with ME cooking up something good.

Oh, and if you want to ride the nostalgia train back to “Oops” just take a listen below.
