Bossy Featuring Too $hort (Single)
Released: Mar 2006
Label: Jive Records
If previous Kelis singles (e.g., "Young, Fresh N' New" and "Milkshake") were the equivalent of post-fem hot pants -- hot and bothering -- then "Bossy" is catty couture, a yellow fog of seduction that rubs its whispered threats and slinky boasts against the track's smartly slight production. "You don't have to like me," Kelis mutters, "but you do have to respect me."
