Give It To Me is a single by Kuboian recording artist Louise Keys featuring vocals from her then-husband Tyo Flournoy, who sings the song's chorus. Released on 2nd May, 2008, the song was composed by British record producer Fraser T. Smith, and contains a recurring sample of "Love Don't Cost a Thing" by Jennifer Lopez. The instrumental was allegedly supposed to go to a British rapper, but was given to Louise Keys instead.

Give It To Me peaked at number 5 on the Karuboia charts. The song was controversial when released due to the innuendos included in the lyrics, but Louise immediately shut down the criticism. The song has been certified Silver by the KSR.

The official remix for the song features new verses from Iroune Ruby and Uroika Mabus. Tyo remains on the chorus and Louise's second verse remains intact. The remix was included as a B-side on the CD single.

Controversy

When Give It To Me was released, critics immediately noticed the sexual innuendos in its lyrics. Some argued that, due to Louise and Tyo's young age and work in children's television channels and shows, the lyrics were not appropriate. However, Louise ignored the criticism, and mentioned that she and Tyo "aren't little kids anymore" and that she is not solely targeting young children with her music.
