  • Jermaine Dupri worked with her recently as well, putting what he calls the "JD bounce" on a track called "Shake 'Em Off" and then stepping out of the producer's chair to duet with Carey on a song called "Can I Get Your Number." "Mariah is singing unlike we've heard her in a while," Dupri said. "Sh-- is hot.” - MTV: With Help From Kanye, R. Kelly, Snoop, Mariah Readies New LP by Jennifer Vineyard, October 29, 2004

  • "Get Your Number" is a song, yet again, that I did with Jermaine Dupri, only this time, Jermaine is actually singing on the record which I never in my life would have expected that that was going to happen. He was using it for his album and he had sung the hook and it's a loop of a song "Just An Illusion" by a group called Imagination. When I heard it, he was like "I want to hear you sing it over a loop," and I'm like "Well okay. People always criticize me for singing loops, but alright, there's no other loops on the record basically. So alright, let's do it." When I started to resing the hook, it just didn't have the same quality as when Jermaine was singing it because obviously we have very different voices. So I made it into a duet where Jermaine is singing his part on the hook and I do the verses. A lot of people like it because it's giving you a "Fantasy" like feeling. - AOL Music Commentary, April 22, 2005

  • Jermaine, this is one of the other songs I did with Jermaine on this record, he had looped the Imagination record for his album as a rap song, so it was a whole rap song written on top of the beat by Imagination. And he said “I wanna hear you sing over a loop, I wanna hear you sing over a sample” so I said “ok, let me hear what you have.” And then I heard the record and I remembered that it was a great song from growing up, so we rewrote it, rewrote the verses.” - NRG Radio France Interview, 2005
