"Poppin'" is the fifth single by Chris Brown produced by Dre & Vidal off his debut album, released in November 2006. In a radio interview in Miami, Florida, Brown stated that he will not be shooting a music video. The song peaked at number 42 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The song is included in the Stomp the Yard soundtrack. There is a remix to the song featuring Juelz Santana and Lil Wayne. Both artists are featured on separate tracks on Chris Brown's self-titled debut album as well.
Chris sings about meeting a girl and claims that her looks "set him on fire". He is basically giving praise to the young lady's physical attributes and therefore describing her as "poppin'".
Poppin debuted at number 82 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart on December 5, 2006. The song eventually peaked at number 42 on February 6, 2007 and spent a total of 20 weeks on the chart, though it was not promoted physically as a CD single. The single was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for sales of over 500,000 copies in the United States.
