  • Big Time Rush is an American pop/rock quartet band created by the Nickelodeon network, and made known by the American television series of the same name. The band consists of four real-life best friends: Kendall Schmidt, James Maslow, Carlos Pena Jr. and Logan Henderson. This is a track from their debut album, B.T.R..
  • The sixth season winner of American Idol, Jordin Sparks, features on this song. James Maslow told Artist Direct how the collaboration came about: "Jordin is an unbelievable singer. If you hear her sing in real life, she sounds just as good live every time. She absolutely deserves to be where she is. She's so talented, and she's a sweetheart too. We're on the same label. She wanted to get into acting, so we wrote an episode about her. She came on and was a great actress. The song is one of our first group ballads. It's a five-way ballad, but it turned out pretty cool. Usually, a duet has one person on each side. This has her voice one side and then there are our four voices on the other [Laughs]. It worked out though. It was such a pleasure to have Jordin on the song. She became a good friend of mine. She took me to the actual show before she was in it last time [Laughs]. She's so down-to-earth like that."
