"Snap Yo Fingers" is a 2006 American hip hop single by Atlanta-based rapper/producer Lil Jon. It was originally intended to be the first single from Lil Jon's solo debut album, Crunk Rock.[1] The song was produced by Lil Jon and features E-40 and Sean P. The catchy, up-tempo and club oriented southern hip hop track allowed the song to peak at #7 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.

However, the release date of Crunk Rock was subsequently delayed.[2] In August 2006, Lil Jon's label TVT Records released the second volume of its Crunk Hits rap compilation, and "Snap Yo Fingers" was the opening track.[3] When Crunk Rock was finally released four years later, the song was left out of the album.

On the Billboard Hot 100 and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts, the song reached number seven and one, respectively. The music video was directed by Hype Williams.[4][5][6]
