"Your Body's Callin" is a 1994 single by R. Kelly from his album 12 Play.[1] Kelly also released a remix as a B-side to the single featuring his protégé 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 another song he wrote and produced, "Back and Forth" by Aaliyah and "Any Time, Any Place" by Janet Jackson which he remixed 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 Ron Isley's longtime collaborator Kelly by The Isley Brothers on the song "Warm Summer Nights", with background vocals by Angela Winbush towards the end the of the track from the album Eternal, released in 2001.

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