"Let Me Blow Ya Mind" is the second single from Eve's second album, "Scorpion". Released in 2001, the single (which features Gwen Stefani) peaked at number two in the U.S.; it also reached number twenty-nine in Canada, and was also her second hit in the UK, peaking at number four. The song was listed at number seven on the 2001 Pazz & Jop list, a survey of several hundred music critics conducted by Robert Christgau.

Retrieved August 15, 2007.] It won a Grammy Award in 2002 for "Best Rap/Sung Collaboration", which was a brand new category at the time. The music video won the 2001 MTV Video Music Award for "Best Female Video".

Video

In the music video, Gwen Stefani and Eve are arrested for disrupting a formal party with their loud music and rowdiness. An older woman appears in the video: the woman shares a strong resemblance to Leona Helmsley. She tells police officers about the disturbance as Gwen and Eve disrupt the party. Dr. Dre has also an appearance at the end of the video when he comes to jail and pays the bail for Eve & Gwen. Fellow Ruff Ryders Jadakiss and Styles P make a brief cameo in a scene where Eve acts as a bartender.

The song was one of the biggest selling between May/June 2002 in the United Kingdom.

The song was played in the sitcom "Friends" when Monica attempts to strip for Chandler but ends up admitting the clothes and shoes she's wearing are extremely tight. The song was actually the original version, in which the swearing is audible.
