Music sample

"My Boo" (sometimes subtitled as "The Things You Do") is a song by the musician CeCe Peniston, which was released on the Steve Hurley's own record label in February 2001[1] as the singer's last single issued under the producer's Silk Entertainment label.

The single release followed the US Dance success of the Peniston's number two hit Lifetime to Love, her first Top 3 entry in the Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play since 1995. Six months later, a remixed four track alternation of "My Boo" that featured also mixes from Ron Carroll would follow in August. But due to its exclusive release on vinyl, and non-availability either on various artists CD music compilations, the title became a very hard-to-find item at least in a digital format.

The song contained a sample of "The Bottle" by Gil Scott-Heron, one of the most important progenitors of rap music (at that time imprisoned for one to three years following series of drug possession charges as well as his failure to deal with persistent drugs problems,[2] which scored at number fifteen[3] on the US R&B chart.
