Christina Aguilera - Lady Marmalade

"Lady Marmalade" is a song by the girl group Labelle. It was written by Bob Crewe alongside Kenny Nolan and produced by Allen Toussaint and Vicki Wickham. It was released on August 3, 1974 as the first single from Nightbirds. The song came about after Crewe made first-hand observations in New Orleans. After it was first recorded by Nolan's group Eleventh Hour in 1974 on Eleventh Hour's Greatest Hits LP, Labelle's producer Allen Toussaint decided to record it for Nightbirds. The song is famous for its sexually suggestive chorus of "Voulez-vous coucher avec moi (ce soir)?", which translates into English as "Do you want to sleep with me (tonight)?"
