Mila J

Mila J’s never been one to shy away from unleashing her sultry side. Her comfortability and confidence are heard on her recent mixtapes -- MILAULONGTIME and Dopamine -- and fueled her decision to model in a Playboy spread earlier this year. To heat things up as she readies her long-awaited debut album, Mila J craves a steamy love session with a significant other on her latest gem “Touch Me,” premiering exclusively on Billboard below.

Mila’s seductive single “Touch Me” was written specifically for a scene from the upcoming thriller ‘Til Death Do Us Part (starring Taye Diggs, Annie Ilonzeh, and Stephen Bishop). The “No Fux” singer’s silvery vocals lay over the slow-burning, synth-laden melody as she croons, “sheets on the floor, prints on my leg/ Back on the door, makeup on the bed” on the bedroom banger. 

“’Touch Me” has this intimate, stripped-down vibe to it that’s very sexy but still classy and mature,” the singer tells Billboard. She says she wanted to keep the production “simple” but also wanted to translate the song’s intimacy so it “feels like you’re the one sitting in the room almost -- make it more personal.”

Beyond the movie’s sensual scene during which Mila J’s track is featured, the R&B singer reveals that ‘Til Death Do Us Part’s message on domestic abuse and manipulation was a key factor in her decision to be a part of the film. “The movie is helping and empowering women who might be in domestic violence situations to be strong enough to walk away,” she explained. “It’s coming out in October, which is also Domestic Violence Awareness Month, so I wanted to be a part of a project that’s empowering women to stand up for themselves.”
