"Women Lie, Men Lie" is a single by American rapper Yo Gotti.[1] It features rapper Lil Wayne. It was released on iTunes on December 11, 2009 for digital download. This song samples the Jay-Z song "Reminder" released earlier that year.

Background and composition[edit]

Following his signing to J Records in 2009, Yo Gotti began to record material for his debut studio album, titled Live from the Kitchen.[2] "5 Star", the first single released from the album, became Gotti's first song to appear on the US Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number 79.[3] In an interview with HipHopDX, Gotti revealed that he had recorded a song with Lil Wayne for the album, although the title was not announced at the time.[2] Following its leak online, "Women Lie, Men Lie" was released for digital download on December 14, 2009, originally as the second single from Live from the Kitchen.[4] However, Live from the Kitchen experienced several delays to its release date which meant it was not released until January 10, 2012, and "5 Star" (although it is present in a remixed form featuring fellow rappers Gucci Mane, Trina and Nicki Minaj) and "Women Lie, Men Lie" were removed from the album's track listing.[5] "We Can Get It On", a collaboration with singer Ciara, was later released as the new first single from the album on May 19, 2011.[6]

"Women Lie, Men Lie" is backed by a propulsive, "swaggering" electronica-based production.[7][8] It is of three minutes and 36 seconds in length,[4] and the song's concept and title were inspired by lyrics from fellow rapper Jay-Z's song "Reminder", from his album The Blueprint 3 (2009).[7]

Music video[edit]

The music video debuted on BET. It features a story about a girl. Lil Wayne filmed this video before his jail sentence.
