"Crush on You" is a single by Lil' Kim from her debut album and features fellow Junior M.A.F.I.A. members Lil' Cease & The Notorious B.I.G.. It peaked at number 23 in the UK Singles Chart. The original album version had Lil' Cease rapping alone, while the single version featured him with Lil' Kim. Luther Campbell, Aaliyah and Sheek Louch of The LOX are featured in the music video. The song contains a sample of Jeff Lorber Fusion's "Rain Dance" from their 1979 album Water Sign.

Background[edit]

The song was supposed to be a duet between Kim and Lil' Cease from the beginning, but after filming the video for her debut single "No Time", Kim fell pregnant, she would later decide to abort. After this, Kim took a musical hiatus. This resulted in the album version of the song featuring just Lil' Cease. The single version, retitled as a remix, features Kim.

The "Crush on You" (Remix) was never featured on the "Crush on You" single, it was only featured on the "Not Tonight" single.
