"My Body" is a song by R&B group LSG released as the first single from their debut album Levert.Sweat.Gill.

The song was a success, spending seven weeks at number-one on the US R&B chart. It also reached number four on the Billboard Hot 100 in late 1997 for three weeks. It was one of the songs that was blocked from getting even higher on the chart due to Elton John's smash "Candle in the Wind 1997". It was produced by Darrell "Delite" Allamby and written by Darrell Delite Allamby Antionette Roberson and Link

There is a remix single that features Missy Elliott.

Fellow former group member Keith Sweat sings the song as a tribute to member Gerald LeVert appears on the live DVD, The Sweat Hotel, and appeared on The Mo'Nique Show, who performs a medley as the closing of the show in October 2010 as also part of the tribute to him during the closing credits.

Late R&B singer Static Major sampled the chorus on his song "Infatuated".
