"Hot Damn" features a sample from another The Neptunes song "What Happened to That Boy" by Birdman featuring The Clipse.
The song was originally titled "God Damn" but it was changed under the advice of the record label, who believed that "nobody in the bible belt would play it". It has new lyrics on the track, which are different from the original.
