People are storming social media with their top picks, and on Monday, Twitter was abuzz as singer Amerie began to trend. According to the social media platform, her classic jam “1 Thing” was one of the best songs of the decade—t’s just too bad that it came out in 2005. It’s unclear why people didn’t just Google the track to get the correct year, but Amerie addressed the praise while on her Instagram Live.

“They’re doing song of the decade, but the funny thing is, it’s not really from this decade,” she said with a slight laugh. “Um, but you know, I’ll take it. One of the dopest songs in the last 20 years, I’ll take that.” Watch her clip, and the music video for “1 Thing” below and let us know if you agree with her.
