Cherish is an R&B vocal group from Atlanta, Georgia founded by Farrah, Neosha, Felisha and Fallon King (Felisha and Fallon are twins). Farrah and Neosha left the group in 2009, leaving them as a duo. This crunk track is their biggest hit.

The Jazze-Pha-founded label Sho'nuff Records released the song as Cherish's lead single from Unappreciated. The group's debut album, it debuted at #5 on the Billboard 200 and was certified Platinum by the RIAA for shipping one million units to stores.
Don Vito produced the track. Critics compared his production to the tracks Jazze Pha produced for Ciara's Goodies album, including the hit single "1, 2 Step."
The song features on the soundtrack of the 2006 American coming-of-age comedy-drama film, ATL.
Orlando-based DJ and producer Acraze released a rework on August 20, 2021. Credited to "Acraze featuring Cherish," it features a sample of Cherish's vocals laid over his sultry house production. His version peaked at #9 in the UK and #12 in the US.
German-Russian DJ and producer Zedd created a remix of Acraze's version by mashing it up with the theme song of Netflix's hit series Squid Game.
