"F.U.R.B. (Fuck You Right Back)" is the debut single by American R&B singer Frankee. The song was recorded in response to Eamon's hit "Fuck It (I Don't Want You Back)", and peaked at number one in the United Kingdom and Australia; the song also entered the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States, and became a top ten hit in Denmark, Germany, Ireland, and Norway. Although Frankee claimed to have been Eamon's girlfriend and that his song was written about her, Eamon denied this.

Background[edit]

While Eamon initially said he selected Frankee to record the song at an audition, he later stated that his only involvement was in clearing the use of the music with the following statement:

"I was not involved with 'F.U.R.B.' I have never met Frankee and she is definitely not my girlfriend or ex-girlfriend. The only way I was associated with it was when I was asked for licensing permission by Frankee's representatives, which makes me a writer on her song by copyright law. But I really didn't expect all this to come out of it, they are having fun with it, it's cool but in the end they are paying me for their 15 minutes of fame and I welcome her to my world of Ho-Wop!"[1][2]

Commercial performance[edit]

Upon its release, the song became a number-one hit in the United Kingdom and Australia. "F.U.R.B." replaced Eamon's song atop the UK Singles chart, selling 80,000 copies in its first week.[3][4]
