"My Little Secret" is Xscape's second single, produced by Jermaine Dupri, from their third studio album "Traces of My Lipstick". The song reached number nine on the Billboard Hot 100 and number two on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks, becoming their last single to reach the top ten on both charts.[1] The song talks about a sexual relationship on "the side" while cheating, with lyrics :everybody cheats, but you gotta know how, you gotta know when,; turning into a "little secret" love affair.

This was the last official single by the group before disbanding just after the release of the album.

This song has been sampled by Lil Wayne's Young Money group member and Teen Rapper Lil Twist on his first 2010 single "Little Secret" featuring Jermaine Dupri's protégé Bow Wow.

The music video for "My Little Secret" was made in June 1998.
