  • Houston rapper Slim Thug does the male vocals and helped produce the track.
  • This was billed as a Beyoncé solo single, but it also appears on the Destiny's Child's hits album #1's. Beyoncé's Destiny's Child band mates Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland shared in production duties.
  • This was used in the movie The Pink Panther, which Beyoncé starred in.
  • This video directed by Hype Williams won best R&B Video at the 2006 MTV Video Music Awards. on MTV's Making Of The Video, Beyoncé said: "The song is so fun, it makes you feel like a child again and we wanted to put some of that in the choreography and the feel of the video. It's all about checking on yourself and making sure you're moving tight and your man admiring how you move. It's simple." >>
