A huge pop hit (despite its steamy video and explicit, adult-oriented lyrical content and themes), it subsequently became a success at urban radio and BET, and is the only time he has produced two consecutive top 10 singles from a solo album, except for Release Therapy (an unedited version of the video could only be viewed on BET's Uncut program). Ludacris took a more mature approach to his fourth album, The Red Light District.It was Ludacris' most sexual video yet, an R&B remix that featured Raphael Saadiq and sampled Tony! Sohail Khalid helped produce this album with various artists such as T. Ludacris openly boasted that he may be the only rapper able to keep the Def Jam label afloat on the opening track.Additionally, Eudoxie’s Facebook page is private and she updates her statuses in French.
In 2000, Ludacris released his major label debut, Back for the First Time. Ludacris stated in an interview on MTV's hip hop program Direct Effect that he came up with his stage name based on his "split personality" that he considered "ridiculous" and "ludicrous".Everyone knows that rapper Ludacris loves intelligent women.That’s really all he dates when he decides to get serious about a girl.At around the same time, he released the lead single from his album Chicken-n-Beer, called "P-Poppin" (short for "Pussy Poppin'").Neither of his new singles were as well received by either the urban or pop audiences as his previous songs had been, and both music videos received only limited airplay.
