  • This song features singer-songwriter Janelle Monáe, who Big Boi first came across when she moved from New York to Atlanta in the mid 2000s. The OutKast star was the co-executive producer of Monáe's debut album, The ArchAndroid and he also featured on her single, "Tightrope."
  • Big Boi told MTV UK: "I think what's special about Janelle Monae is that she is a true artist from the heart you know. I first signed her about 5 years ago, I saw her in an open mic night and she was singing an Anita Baker song, she had a voice like a songbird so I picked her up right from there and groomed her. She has a whole crew, the Wonderland Arts Society and they have a vision."
