"The Potion" is the third single from Ludacris' fourth studio album, The Red Light District. It peaked at number 65 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs singles chart. The beat was originally offered to Jay-Z for The Black Album, but was rejected in favor of the beat that was used in "Dirt Off Your Shoulder".[1] This song was the conclusion to the music video of the preceding single "Number One Spot". The song was also featured in the final dance sequence of Step Up 2: The Streets.
