"It's Like That" is a song written by Mariah Carey, Jermaine Dupri, Manuel Seal, and Johntá Austin, and produced by Carey, Dupri, and Seal for Carey's tenth studio album, The Emancipation of Mimi (2005). It borrows the hook "it's like that y'all" from the Run-D.M.C. tracks "Hollis Crew" (1984) and "Here We Go (Live)" (1983), and shares its name with another Run DMC song. It was the first single to be released from the album, in 2005. It was a top twenty hit in several countries, including the United States, and was nominated for a 2006 Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. "Stay the Night", produced by Kanye West, "Say Somethin'" featuring Snoop Dogg, and Shake It Off were all contenders for the lead single. Eventually, however, plans were changed when Island Records head L.A. Reid suggested to Carey she record a few more strong songs to ensure the album's success. After a writing and recording session with Dupri, "It's Like That" was chosen as the lead single.

[Verse 1:]

Boy, you got me inspired
Baby, come and get it
If you're really feelin me

No stress, no fights
I'm leavin it all behind
No tears, no time to cry
Just makin the most of life

Everybody is livin it up (Uh)
All the fellas keep lookin' at us (cuz)

A cause for celebration
