Macy Gray, 'B.O.B.'

For the most part, R&B is about the pain and pleasures of being in love, hip hop is about the struggle and rock-n-roll is about living on the edge. It's a rare occasion when a song emerges about self-love, the kind of relationship Macy Gray sings about in her new ditty "B.O.B. (Battery Operated Better)."

Not afraid of sharing her alone time, Macy opens up with lyrics about her vibrator that include, "He fits like a glove, always up for love / He gets me so excited / I turn him on / We go baby go / Start the fire and lightning / Ooh aah ooh, I love my baby BOB." 

While Macy explores the solo route with her new cartoon/lyric video (which you can see here) check out a few more artists who've lyrically explored the joys of self-satisfaction. Read on. — Michael Harris (@IceBlueVA)
