"Humpin' Around" is a song by American singer Bobby Brown. It spent two weeks at number one on the U.S. R&B chart and reached number three on the Billboard Hot 100.[3] It is rumored that the song was originally titled "F*ckin' Around", with the name later changed to make it more radio friendly, and to avoid potential censorship.

Music video[edit]

The music video features Brown dancing outside with women in cages, with cut scenes of a girl trying to break in to his phone and personal belongings to find his mistress in NYC.

A second video was shot primarily outside for the Dance Remix, along with random shots and outtakes from the original video.
