"Touch" is a song by American R&B singer-songwriter Amerie from her second studio album, Touch (2005). Written by Amerie, Lil Jon, Sean Garrett, LRoc, Craig Love, and LaMarquis Jefferson and produced by Lil Jon, the track was released as the album's second and final single during the third quarter of 2005. While "Touch" reached the top twenty in the United Kingdom and Ireland and number thirty-three in Australia, it failed to match the success of "1 Thing" in the United States, missing the Billboard Hot 100 and only reaching number ninety-five on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs.

Music video[edit]

The single's music video, directed by Chris Robinson, was shot on a jungle set in California. It starts out with Amerie emerging from the bushes with her dancers. They then proceed into a club barefooted, performing intricate choreography. Throughout most of the video she is dancing and it ends with her returning to the jungle to conclude her dance sequence. There is also a video for the song's official remix featuring rapper T.I.
