Sweet Nothin's is a 1959 song by Brenda Lee written by Ronnie Self.[1] It peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 12 on the Hot R&B Sides chart, in 1960.[2] The song (as Sweet Nuthin's) also charted on the UK Singles Chart in 1960, peaking at No. 4,[3] marking Lee's first appearance on the UK chart.

Lee's voice from "Sweet Nothin's" was sampled in Kanye West's song "Bound 2" on his 2013 album Yeezus,[4] which in turn was sampled by Sigma in their 2014 song, "Nobody to Love", which also uses the same vocal sample from "Sweet Nothin's" as "Bound 2" does.
