"My Neck, My Back (Lick It)" is a song written and recorded by American rapper Khia. It was released in April 2002 as the lead single from her debut album, Thug Misses. Due to its sexually explicit lyrics, an edited version of the song was released to mainstream radio. The song reached number 42 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.[2] It also reached the top five in the United Kingdom two years later[3] and the top fifteen in Australia.[4]

Content[edit]

The song encourages both cunnilingus and anilingus.[5] While the original version of the song contained sexually explicit lyrics, a heavily edited version was used for radio broadcasting and the official music video.[6]

Music video[edit]

The video for the song, directed by Diane Martel, was released during the spring of 2002[7] and shows Khia at a barbecue. In the United Kingdom, a different video was used, which did not feature Khia, instead depicting a group of bikini-clad models washing a Hummer H2 in a sexual manner while lip-syncing the words to the song.
