Now she is following the hit up with her second single, "Shawty Get Loose," [watch video here] which features Chris Brown and R&B singer T-Pain. Billboard says that the single has moved from the 92nd spot to number 19 on their Hot 100 chart, giving it the biggest gain on their tally this year. With the ever growing success of MTV's "Randy Jackson Presents America's Best Dance Crew," Lil Mama as a judge on the show has added to her fame and popularity, not to mention, in a smart marketing move, her label has her hit playing during commercials for the show on MTV.
