Missy Elliott has revealed the true meaning behind Tweet‘s 2002 debut single, “Oops (Oh My).”

The song from Tweet’s debut album, Southern Hummingbird, featured guest vocals from Elliott, who co-wrote the Timbaland-produced tune with Tweet.

A longstanding myth about the meaning behind “Oops (Oh My)” is that it is about self-love. However, Elliott has cleared the misconception behind the meaning of the song, which reached No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2002.

“#Funfact. This song was never bout Masturbation It was always about her appreciating her Dark Skin (Self Love) when she looked in the mirror,” Elliott tweeted.

She added, “It was the listeners that thought it was about sex & just ran with it… & we just let the consumers mind create what they wanted.”

The song had provocative lyrics such as “Mmm, I was looking so good, I couldn’t reject myself/ I was feeling so good, I had to touch myself.”
