Pop My Clutch is the sixth track on Chaka Khan’s tenth solo studio album Come 2 My House. The song was written by Chaka Khan, Prince (as SymbolSmallerBlue.png) and Kirk Johnson, and produced by Chaka Khan and Prince (as SymbolSmallerBlue.png).

While specific recording dates are not known, basic tracking took place between November 1997, and January 1998, at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota. Horn overdubs took place between early December 1997, and early February 1998, also at Paisley Park Studios. It was included as the eleventh track on a February 1998, configuration of Come 2 My House, before the tracklist was revised for release.

Of note is that the song features a rap by American rapper (later actress) Queen Latifah. Pop My Clutch marks the only known collaboration between SymbolSmallerBlue.png and Queen Latifah although they most likely did not work together in the studio for that song.
