"Outta My System" is the second single from Bow Wow's fifth album, The Price of Fame. It features T-Pain and Johntá Austin. This was confirmed on his official MySpace page. The video premiered on Valentine's Day on BET's Access Granted. The original next single was supposed to be "I'm a Flirt" but was cancelled in favor of "Outta My System", and that the fact that R. Kelly is having some chart success on Snoop Dogg's "That's That Shit" and Young Jeezy's "Go Getta".

Song and video information[edit]

In this song, Bow Wow is thought to be addressing his breakup with Ciara, his former girlfriend. This was confirmed by Bow Wow himself when he mentioned her name during a performance of the song on 106 & Park. This song is thought to be a song about their break-up, in which was rumored to be a result of Bow Wow's sexual relations with one of Ciara's friend's Ashley R. (a video girl who appeared in the show College Hill: Atlanta). This song's video hit number 1 on "106 and Park" in just 7 days but after it went down to number 8 and then fell off the countdown, unlike his previous video "Shortie Like Mine" which went to number 1 and stayed on the countdown for 43+ days shortly after. The song uses a sample of Rick James' "Hollywood".
