The Bama Boyz already had a connection with Solange Knowles having produced "ChampagneChroniKnightCap" and "Valentine's Day" on her Sol-Angel And The Hadley Street Dreams
album. So it was no surprise that Houston-based electro trio were asked by Solange to put instrumentals together for her to write to for her sister. However, the Bamaz almost purposely left the music for this song out. "We didn't think it sounded anything like what Beyoncé was recording at the time but we put it in the email anyway just because we knew Solange likes weird records," said Bama Boy Jesse J. Rankins jokingly on the AntiMusic
site. "But we made sure to send it last!"
Out of all the attempts the boyz sent to Solange, she chose this funk-pop track and went ahead and wrote the song. Bama Boy Jonathan D. Wells commented: "When we heard Solange's demo, we were excited because that track was more our true sound than any of the others [sent], but we still kinda didn't believe Beyoncé would cut it... but we hoped!"
