  • This Pop Wansel and Mike Dean-produced sex ode is the third single from American Hip-Hop artist Big Sean's debut set Finally Famous: The Album. He explained the tune to MTV News, "It's kind of another day in the life, man, but it's just like, you know when you with your lady and you got those special times? All you really need is that Marvin Gaye and that Chardonnay."
  • Kanye West and Atlanta MC Roscoe Dash contribute verses to the song. Whilst this is the first collaboration between Sean and Roscoe, the My Last artist and his G.O.O.D. Music boss have appeared on a number of songs together. Sean previously spat bars on several of Ye's Good Friday tracks, including "Good Friday"and "Don't Look Down."
  • Big Sean told Billboard magazine that the song was all Kanye's creation. "He gave me the beat, Roscoe was already on it," he said "He was in Paris, I was in LA and he hit me and was like like, 'yo, you should put this on your album.' It was perfect. It was a key necessity for it. We wrote our verses over the phone and just knocked it out."
  • The colourful Hype Williams directed music video was shot in New York and co-stars Kanye West, Roscoe Dash and selection of shapely models. Williams is one of the top directors for R&B and rap visuals and his previous credits include Kanye West's "Gold Digger," for which he won the 2006 BET Award for Best Director and Beyoncé's "Check On It," for which he was awarded Best R&B Video at the 2006 MTV Video Music Awards.
