The arrangement — marked by stuttering drums, bluesy guitar riffs, deep-bottom bass and piping-hot horn charts — is perfectly crafted to accompany the satisfaction of those urges. Guest vocalist Afrodyete effectively plays the hot-blooded siren, as she pleads, "Give me that mean love / Right now, right here / All your troubles, babe, will disappear." The double-entendres that follow aren't always subtle ("Let you in my kitchen / Taste just a little bit more"), but they sure do get the point across.
