"Into You" is the third single by American rapper Fabolous from his second studio album Street Dreams. It is also on Tamia's album More. It reached number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming the second single from the album to reach the top 10 after top 10 single, "Can't Let You Go". The song stayed on the Billboard Hot 100 chart throughout 2003, and finished at number 23.

"Into You" is based on Tamia's 1998 single "So Into You", produced by Tim & Bob and samples the Commodores' song "Say Yeah", as it was originally sampled on the original Tamia song. While Ashanti provided vocals for the original version of the song, the commercial version (radio edit) sees a reworked version with Tamia as the featured artist for the single release.

Music video[edit]

The music video for the single is 4 minutes and 20 seconds long and was originally supposed to have Ashanti in it, but because of scheduling conflicts, Fabolous and his record label were forced to go with Tamia for the video instead. The video itself has a very early 2000s vibe with Fabolous wearing a lot of jewelry and attire that was considered stylish in the early 2000s (baggy pants and shirt, with fitted cap facing backwards). Tamia wears minimal clothes and acts like she loves Fabolous. The video was shot primarily on a beach, for a summer vibe to keep the single hot and make it a summer hit, even though the song itself was released in March. K. D. Aubert also makes a cameo in the video as his love interest.
