After flopping with the David Guetta produced club tune "Freak," the English R&B singer and rapper Estelle returned to her R&B roots with this number. The lead single from her third album All of Me, this breezy mid-tempo tune was produced by Don Cannon and features Aston Martin Music rapper Rick Ross.
Estelle released two versions of the remix, one containing Swizz Beatz, Raekwon and Rich 32 for the UK market and a second featuring the British songstress spitting bars with Busta Rhymes and Jadakiss for the US. Estelle began her career as a rapper and she told The Boombox she had no problem returning to her rapping roots. "I started as a rapper, my first album [The 18th Day] was damn near all rap, so people know me as a rapper from home," she said. "This wasn't scary, I enjoyed rapping again. I felt like I needed to spit some bars."
The video was shot in Malibu, California and co-directed by Iren Brown and Chris Robinson. It co-stars Rick Ross and actor Omari Hardwick (For Colored Girls), who plays Estelle's love interest. She said: "The basic concept is I'm rolling up to this house and I'm having a dinner party, but I invited this guy that I'm trying to get it on with. The entire time I'm thinking about him, but in my heart I'm doubting, maybe he'll break my heart. I pray he doesn't break my heart."
