"Oops (Oh My)" is a song by American R&B-soul singer–songwriter Tweet, featuring American rapper Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott. It was written by Tweet and Elliott and produced by Timbaland for Tweet's debut album, Southern Hummingbird (2002). Released as the album's lead single in February 2002, the song received large airplay from U.S. and UK radios, becoming a top ten hit in both countries. Remixes of the song feature rappers Bubba Sparxxx and Fabolous.

Song information[edit]

The single, produced by Tweet's longtime collaborator Timbaland, peaked at number seven on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and number one on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, becoming her most successful single to date. Some of the success of the song is because it is widely believed to be about female masturbation. Elliott and Jay-Z reference this song during the track "Wake Up", from the former's 2003 album This Is Not a Test!, when Jay-Z raps, "I wanna feel myself like Tweet".

The English electropop band Ladytron covered the song on their 2003 compilation album Softcore Jukebox.
