“If You’re Ready To Learn” is a sexually explicit song performed by R&B musician Brian McKnight, which caused a stir online when it was uploaded to the video sharing site YouTube in April of 2012.


On April 23rd, 2012, singer-songwriter Brian McKnight uploaded a video of himself performing a song in his home studio to his official YouTube[1] channel. In the video, McKnight revealed that he had been working on an “adult mix tape” and began singing part of a song he called “If You’re Ready To Learn.” The lyrics described performing cunnilingus on a woman in order to make her ejaculate. The same night it was uploaded to YouTube, McKnight removed the video and apologized for offending viewers via his Twitter[4] account. Shortly after, the video was reuploaded by several other YouTubers.

Let me show you how your pussy works,
since you didn’t bring it to me first,
I have lots of things to show you,
if you’re ready to learn,
let me show you how your pussy works,
bet you didn’t that it could squirt,
I have lots of things to show you,
if you’re ready to learn.
