"Thug Lovin'" is a song by rapper Ja Rule featuring singer Bobby Brown, released in late 2002 as the first single from the album The Last Temptation. The song was produced by Irv Gotti. Bobby Brown's sung portion is an interpolation of part of the chorus of the Stevie Wonder song "Knocks Me Off My Feet".

The music video, directed by Irv Gotti, for the song features scenes of Ja Rule and Bobby Brown in a helicopter, on a helipad on top of a skyscraper which has the Murder Inc. logo on it, the two artists driving in a Bentley, and the two going to a party. The video premiered on BET's Access Granted in 2002.
