Song information[edit]

The song "Move Ya Body" was spawned and advertised as a summer dance hit. The song itself is Nicole and Natalie in a club, singing "move your body, girl". The song's context was proven odd, but was meant as a positive "Go get him girl!" message.

The song uses the Coolie Dance riddim and contains a sample of the Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam song titled "Can You Feel The Beat."
