During a recent interview with Montreality, Sexyy Red gave the definition of one of her most popular songs and catchphrases, "SkeeYee." The St. Louis-born performer revealed that the term is actually something that "Geeks," or people addicted to drugs, will shout at someone they find attractive.

"'SkeeYee.' That's when like, you see a cute girl or somebody with a big booty, or you're tryin' to holler at somebody," she begins. "They call that the 'geek call.'" Sexyy Red continues, "a geek is a crackhead, a dope fiend." Luckily, curious fans now have a little more insight on the catchy song, and St. Louis slang. Elsewhere in the interview, she also revealed the most romantic gesture she's ever received from a man. She described being swept off of her feet when a boyfriend robbed someone and gave her $13 he stole. She recalled knowing that he went out of his way to impress her. "It was just so sweet 'cause he was out of breath and stuff," she shared.
