"Gettin' Some" (explicitly titled "Gettin' Some Head") is a song by hip-hop artist Shawnna released from her second album Block Music. The original version of "Gettin' Some" appears on Block Music as a hidden track. The song samples Too Short's "Blowjob Betty."

The radio edit of the song features rapper Ludacris. The song is a reference to oral sex as the rappers(chourus) tell in their parts in the song about receiving oral sex from women. The popularity of the song earned Shawnna her first Platinum certification as a solo artist by the RIAA on December 14, 2006. The music video included Chicago model Candy Brooks as the "oohs and aahs girl".[1]
