Ashanti dated Nelly for five years before the pair eventually split up, and many people believe this song is about their broken romance. When asked if the song was motivated by her relationship with the St. Louis rapper, Ashanti hinted that the lyrics are directed at him without actually confirming it.

. "A lot of people have been in a situation where they've been betrayed or lied to or taken advantage of. Everyone has been through betrayal. It speaks volumes. It is a universal message. Everyone has been in a situation where they felt betrayed and wish you had not been put in that situation. You can feel it. This record strikes a chord. I felt it was important to be vulnerable and show I am human and that I have feelings."
