Pleasure P explained to BlackVibes.com
that this song "is telling guys that whatever you won't do, another guy will do. A lot of girls have a boyfriend #2 because men sometimes forget and we don't pay attention to our girl like we should. We don't give her flowers anymore. We just get real comfortable."
This was the second single released from former Pretty Ricky member Pleasure P's debut solo album The Introduction of Marcus Cooper. He explained why he titled the album after his birth name: "The reason I named it that is because Pretty Ricky introduced you all to Pleasure P, but now Pleasure P is going to introduce you to Marcus Cooper, which is my government name. This time, I'm in my own lane musically - I'm grown up now. I'm talking about things that average R&B guys don't talk about but that average people can relate to. Pretty Ricky was overly raunchy, young and with no direction. Now, my music is classier and I'll tell you exactly how it is."
Pleasure P clarified to MTV News: "I'm not encouraging people to cheat on this record. What I'm saying is I'm sending a message, step up your game. You see in the video, the average guy gets the girl because the guy with the money wasn't treating her right. Don't stop giving her flowers and saying, 'Baby, how was your day?,' and telling her how you feel. [If you don't], another man will."
