  • Lyrics
  • This song is blatantly sexual, with Akon describing a girl who is attracted to him because of his wealth and fame. Knowing this, he considers taking her back to his place where he can engage her in a sexual act where she will be positioned in a way that she can look back and see him smacking her in the rear.
  • Eminem raps on this. Other songs on the album feature raps by Snoop Dogg and Styles P.
  • In October 2006, this broke the record for biggest jump on the US charts when it leaped from 95 to 7, mainly because of heavy download sales. In April 2007, the record was broken by Shakira and Beyoncé's "Beautiful Liar."
  • The music video is a takeoff on the Eddie Murphy/Nick Nolte movie 48 Hours. Akon plays Murphy's role of a convict who is released for a short time so he can help solve a crime. The music video diverges from the movie plot as Akon goes to a club and meets up with Eminem. >>

  • Akon mispronounces Lamborghini Gallardo as Ga-la-do instead of Gay-ar-do. >>
