  • This club-friendly jam is the third single from R&B singer Chris Brown's fourth studio album, F.A.M.E. It was released to radio on March 11, 2011.
  • The uplifting song sees Breezy encouraging listeners to discover the beauty inside. "Don't let 'em bring you down/ 'Cause you start your life today/ Live any thoughts you dreamed of," he sings. Brown explained to MTV News: "It wasn't a selfish record, it wasn't me bragging or boasting or talking about cars or money or girls. It was me being able to inspire people with dance music. We have a lot of tragic things going on and the world needs to come together as a whole and stop the negativity."
  • The song features Italian DJ and electro house music producer Benny Benassi, who also co-wrote and co-produced the track. Benassi is best known to many for his hit "Satisfaction," which landed on the charts worldwide in 2002.
