DC, Destiny Child (Slim Thugga)

You need to stop playing 'round with all them clowns and the wankstas
Good girls gotta get down with the gangsta's
Go 'head girl, put some back and some neck up on it
While I stand up in the background and check up on it
Ooh, boy, you looking like you like what you see
Won't you come over and check up on it
I'ma let you work up on it
Ladies let 'em check up on it, watch it while he check up on it
Dip it, pop it, twerk it, stop it, check on me tonight

If you got it, flaunt it, boy, I know you want it
While I turn around, you watch me check up on it
Ooh, you watchin' me shake it, I see it in ya face
Ya can't take it, it's blazin', you watch me in amazement
You can look at it, as long as you don't grab it
If you don't go braggin', I might let you have it
You think that I'm teasin', but I ain't got no reason
I'm sure that I can please ya, but first I gotta read you

Ooh, boy, you looking like you like what you see
Won't you come over and check up on it

Ladies let 'em check up on it, watch it while he check up on it

More patience, you take my, get you in more places

Overall Meaning

The song Check On It by Beyoncé feat. Slim Thug is a sultry, sexy song that is about a woman who knows how to flaunt her assets and wants to be checked out by a man who is interested in her. The lyrics are an invitation to this man to come over and check out her body while she moves seductively. The song is also about empowerment, as it tells women that they should not be ashamed of their bodies and should be proud to show them off.


Throughout the song, Beyoncé sings about how sexy she is and how much a man would enjoy being with her. She tells the man that he can look but not touch, and that if he is patient and willing to wait, she will give him what he wants. She also emphasizes that she is in control and knows what she wants, which is a powerful message for women.


The verses sung by Slim Thug reinforce the same messages of sexiness and empowerment, as he raps about how attractive the women of Houston are and how they should be proud of their physical appearances. The overall message of the song is that women should be confident in their own bodies and should not be afraid to show off how sexy they are.
