Shoo-Bed-Ooh is the fifth track on the New Power Generation’s third and final ’solo' album Newpower Soul, but in June 1997, a year before the album’s release, a short sample of the song was available to stream on (along with samples of ( Like) Funky Music, Funk Radio and Sado-Masochistic Groove).

While specific recording dates are not known, basic tracking took place in May 1997, at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota (during the same set of sessions that produced ( Like) Funky Music).
