Finch parted ways with KC & The Sunshine Band soon after this was released, and the split was far from amicable. He explains what led to it: "I remember being in Disney World in California, and there was a certain moment where everyone was just flipping out and we were almost fist-fighting. And I said, 'So this is what it's come to.' And I was like, 'Well, I don't want to be here anymore, and I quit.' As we grew, the differences got greater and the distractions got greater, and people were all over the place. So I'm like, Okay, this is not what I want. All the craziness on the road, and everything that was going on, I just didn't feel like I fit into that, I don't subscribe to that craziness.
If you listen very closely when I'm producing the vocal on that, you'll hear the conviction in KC's voice, because that was the absolute last song that I did produce for KC & The Sunshine Band. And then I left, and the managers recommended that KC get rid of the band and just make it a solo career. So he goes and signs this deal with Epic, I came back for a few minutes to help patch up a song here or there, like 'Give It Up
