Taking it back to 1998, Teyana Taylor samples Mase’s “What You Want” for her single featuring King Combs titled “How You Want It?” The R&B singer croons about pleasuring her partner and receiving nothing but the same type of sexual high.
King Combs enters with his own 16 over the Hitmaka and Cardiak-produced melody. On the original version, Mase leads the track with his verses as Total commandeers the infectious chorus, but it’s the reverse for Taylor’s latest musical output.
On her Instagram page, the “Gonna Love Me” singer announced a challenge that’ll award lucky winners with a substantial cash prize for the best choreography and best freestyle dance to the song.

The music video, directed by Taylor, also takes recognizable scenes from old school hits like Mase and Puff Daddy’s shiny suits in “Mo Money Mo Problems” and LL Cool J’s “Doin’ It,” not to forget a group of dancers for you to learn a quick choreographed routine as well. Misa Hylton was also the stylist for the latter part of the visual, specifically the MCM designs, which is fitting since the visionary was responsible for a number of the 1990s’ hip-hop and R&B artists’ looks.
