  • Brown called his second album Exclusive as he felt it was an album especially for his fans. He said, "I made this album 'exclusively' for them." The album was originally going to be titled Graduation, but was renamed due to Kanye West's album, which was released a few months earlier having the same name.
  • This was the eighth song in the Rock era to debut at the bottom of the chart, in this case #100, and climb all the way to the top. Other songs that have achieved the same feat include "When A Man Loves A Woman," by Percy Sledge, "The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia" by Vicki Lawrence and "Can't Help Falling In Love" by UB40.
