"Splash Waterfalls" the second single off Ludacris' album Chicken-n-Beer. The song features Sandy Coffee responding to Ludacris' verses, but she is not credited as featured guest on the single. The video describes a desired love between two people. As well, other intimate feelings and thoughts are shown in the song. This song's video and song content resembles another famous Ludacris single called "What's Your Fantasy", with its explicit lyrics and adult-like content. In the radio/music video version's lyrics, "touch me" replaces the explicit version's "fuck me".

Remix[edit]

The official remix, "Splash Waterfalls (Whatever You Want Remix)", sampling Tony! Toni! Toné!'s "Whatever You Want", was released and features Sandy Coffee and Raphael Saadiq. The song was produced by The Trak Starz.

Music video[edit]

In the video, Ludacris appears in a background of cold, blue mountains that resemble a utopia[1] with Sandy Coffee singing "Make love to me" and "Touch me" every time Luda raps a verse accompanied with "Say it" and "What?" Along with Luda's previous videos, it alludes to the song's lyrics. Midway through the video, the song cuts out and the "Whatever You Want" remix of the song plays for the rest of the video, with Raphael Saadiq appearing. Malaysia Pargo, future wife of Jannero Pargo and co-star of Basketball Wives: LA, is among the women featured in the latter half of the video.
