  • This The-Dream written and produced song is a bonus track on the Target Deluxe and Japanese editions of 4. The R&B songwriter and producer also has credits on the album's opening track, "1+1," "End of Time," "Countdown," "Run The World (Girls)," and "Love On Top."
  • Recording engineer Jordan "DJ Swivel" Young told Billboard magazine why this is his favorite track on 4: "It's basically a song about life and growing up. We recorded that toward the end of the project. As soon as I heard it I told B, 'That's the one... I love that song.' I actually got the chance to mix that record. It was incredible that she allowed me to do that."
