"Dedication to My Ex (Miss That)" is a song by R&B recording artist Lloyd, released on August 9, 2011 as the third single from his fourth studio album, King of Hearts (2011). The song, produced by Polow da Don and D. Smith from Zone 4 productions, features a verse from André 3000 of OutKast and is "narrated" by Lloyd's frequent collaborator, American rapper Lil Wayne. The brass instrumentation was performed by Siraaj Amnesia James. The song was edited for radio in the United Kingdom (among other places), replacing the word "pussy" with "lovin'". The single reached the top 5 in the UK, Australia, and Ireland. It also reached the top 10 in Denmark, Netherlands, Austria and Croatia. The song is Lloyd's biggest hit internationally to date.

Music video[edit]

The song's music video, directed by Bryan Barber, premiered on 106 & Park on September 13, 2011. André 3000 does not appear in the video; instead Wayne Brady and a cat mouthed Wayne and Andre 3000's lyrics, respectively.[1] The video featured Natalie la Rose as the leading female character.[2]
