The title is French for "My Dearest Love."
Wonder wrote this for his girlfriend at the time, Marcia. It was originally titled "Oh My Marcia."
Motown songwriter/producers Henry Cosby and Sylvia Moy wrote this with Wonder, who was 19 at the time. Wonder was recording at age 12, and was writing songs in his teenage years. On his later hits, Wonder did almost all of the writing and production himself, but early on, he had a lot of help from the Motown staff.
This was released as the B-side of "I Don't Know Why (I Love You)" in March, 1969. By June, Disc Jockeys flipped the record and played this as the single, where it eclipsed the original single.
