"Humpin' Around" is the title of a number-one R&B single by singer Bobby Brown. The hit song spent two weeks at number one on the U.S. R&B chart and reached number three on the Billboard Hot 100.[3] The song samples Led Zeppelin's "Dancing Days".

Music video[edit]

The music video features Brown dancing in a heavy metal nightclub with women in cages, with cut scenes of his supposed girlfriend trying to break in to his phone and personal belongings to find his mistresses in NYC.

A second video was shot primarily outside for the Dance Remix, along with random shots and outtakes from the original video.
