"Turn Me On" is the debut single by Vincentian singer Kevin Lyttle. It was the lead single from his self-titled debut album. The song was originally a soca ballad recorded in 2002 and released in 2003, remade into a dance hit for the US release. Featuring Spragga Benz in the radio remix, "Turn Me On" became a worldwide hit, peaking within top 10 in fifteen countries. Album was mastered by Bb Ludwig of Gateway Mastering.

Song information[edit]

The song samples "All My Love", a song by R&B group 112 from their album Room 112. The remix features additional lyrics performed by Spragga Benz.

Various remixes of the song exist. Some radio stations played the pop mix with added drums or a 'Bubbling/Part II' remix by DJ Lipe (Santiago, Chile), featuring additional female vocals. There have also been several reggaeton remixes of the song including one featuring Ivy Queen. A 'Mad Hatters Ball' remix featuring Alison Hinds was also released. In 2008, the song was re-recorded with Hinds for Lyttle's second album, Fyah.

The song performed well on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number four on August 14 and staying in the chart for months. It was also successful worldwide, reaching number two in the United Kingdom for two weeks (being the best selling non-new entry song twice), number one in Denmark, and number three in Australia, and remains Lyttle's biggest hit to date.

The song was included on Billboard's 12 Best Dancehall & Reggaeton Choruses of the 21st Century at number one[1]

Cover versions[edit]

"Turn Me On" has been covered by numerous artists, including Himanshu Suri, Raghav, Jay Sean, Mumzy Stranger and CocoRosie. There was also a female response from 2 Play called "Got Me Wrong".

The song was covered by American DJ trio Cheat Codes and Dutch DJ Dante Klein, in their 2016 single "Let Me Hold You (Turn Me On)", released on Spinnin' Records.

In July 2017, the song was interpolated by Bosnian singer Maya Berović. Her version is entitled "Balmain" and it features Bosnian rappers Jala Brat and Buba Corelli who are signed as the authors. "Balmain" is featured on Maya's fifth studio album Viktorijina tajna.

The song was interpolated by American singer Chris Brown, in his 2017 single "Questions", released on RCA.
