Long Distance

Songfacts®:

  • Brandy told MTV News about this song concerning the difficulties of long-distance relationships. She explained: "Whether it's a significant other or your daughter, a lot of people are away from the people they love. I met some lady, and she was telling me her husband is away in Iraq right now. I was like, 'I have the perfect song for you.' Just being in a long-distance relationship, that experience is weird. You're not able to have that time, and you need that time."
  • Like the previous single from Human, this was produced and co-produced by Brandy's long-term collaborator Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins. The American singer and actress told MTV News: "We've been working together for years, and we didn't work together on my last project, so this feels like a reunion. I can't go wrong with Rodney. I love the vibes."
