The S.I.M.P. by Rick James (featuring Grandmaster Flash) from his album Cold Blooded (1983), but it doesn't have other similarities with the song. in 2019 Ingrid Chavez has said she wrote it about Kravitz Lenny Kravitz in response to the the drama that went down with the song Justify My Love that she wrote but Lenny Kravitz initially took sole-credit for. The song uses the same beat that is heard in Justify My Love.
