  • After 15 years of solo careers, the sibling duo BeBe and CeCe Winans released this single. Their last album together was 1994's Relationships. CeCe told ChristianMusicPlanet.com about reteaming with her brother: "Singing with him is just my favorite place to sing. It really is. I did the solo thing for a long time, and I know it's God's will for me to do it [again]. I've grown a lot as an artist, but it's my favorite place to sing with him. I love harmonizing with him. I love the feedback that we get from each other. I just think there's a chemistry there that's undeniable."
  • The Winans siblings reunited with their old producer Keith Thomas on this track.
  • This was the siblings first #1 duet on the Gospel Songs chart.
  • Still debuted at #14 on the Billboard 200, a career high for the gospel duo. They achieved a new peak when the song rose to #12 in its third week on the chart.
