"Your Body's Callin" is a 1994 single by R. Kelly from his album 12 Play.[2] Kelly also released a remix as a B-side to the single featuring his protege Aaliyah called the "Your Body's Calling His N Hers Mix". Norman Brown covered the song in 1996 in his album Better Days Ahead. The song was a top-20 pop hit and went to number 2 on the R&B charts, being held back one position on that chart by Aaliyah's "Back and Forth" and Janet Jackson's "Any Time, Any Place". The former was written and produced by Kelly, while the latter was remixed by him and became popular within the Quiet Storm radio format.

Hip hop producer DJ Premier sampled Kelly singing "It's unbelievable" for The Notorious B.I.G.'s song "Unbelievable" on his album Ready to Die released later in 1994.

The song has also been sampled by The Isley Brothers on the song "Warm Summer Nights" from the album Eternal.

The song has also been sampled by Whodini on the song "Be My Lady" also featuring Kelly, from their album Six.
