On November 12, 1996, Lil’ Kim released her highly anticipated debut album, Hardcore. One of the standout tracks on the album was a song she wasn’t even on, called “Crush On You,” performed by then band and crew mate Lil’ Cease. Originally, the song was supposed to be a duet but that version did not release until the summer of 1997 on the “Not Tonight” maxi single. The single version of the song reached Number 23 on the UK Singles Chart.
The music video of the song features Lil’ Kim in various monochromatic rooms where her wig and outfit would match the room’s color. In addition to featuring Lil’ Cease as a rapper on the record, the video also had cameos from Aaliyah, Luke and Sheek Louch.
