Wilson commented on his website that the message of this funky dance number creates an even stronger dance appeal. He explained: "It is all about forgetting your problems and letting out your frustrations. And what better way to do that, than by dancing the night away?"
This is a collaboration with Wilson's friend Snoop Dogg, which came about as a result of the rapper and his family visiting Wilson's ranch to film the Season 1 Finale of his show Snoop Dogg's Fatherhood. Wilson said on his website that he started playing Snoop his demos for Uncle Charlie and when he heard this song, "he immediately began spitting his rhyme. It was like it was made for us."
Wilson has collaborated with Snoop Dogg several times, including on "You Got Nerve" from his 2005 album Charlie, Last Name Wilson.
Wilson revealed on his website that, "Snoop was the one who started calling me "Uncle Charlie."
