"Not That Kind" is a song by American recording artist Anastacia from her debut album, Not That Kind (2000). Written primarily by Anastacia, the song was performed originally on the MTV talent show The Cut in 1998 which in turn helped the singer receive a record deal. The final version of the song was edited with writing help by Will Wheaton and Marvin "Young MC" Young and was released as the album's second single.

Critical reception[edit]

William Ruhlmann of Allmusic marked this song as a highlight and wrote: "funk style reminiscent of Aretha Franklin's '80s work."[1]

Music video[edit]

Directed by Marc Webb, the music video for "Not That Kind" was shot in New York City. It opens with Anastacia singing the song in a club. There are also shots of Anastacia in a cafe, shown that she is chatting with her girlfriend. Other times, her boyfriend is trying to hit on her, but she teases him away to show him that she is "not that kind of girl".
