"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 tell in song's choruses 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]

The official remix of "Gettin' Some" is track 4 on Block Music which features Ludacris, Lil Wayne, Too Short and Pharrell. There is also an extended remix of the track which is on Shawnna's mixtape Worth Tha Weight, Part 2: The Mixtape with additional verses from Busta Rhymes, Pimp C, and Rick Ross.
