Songfacts®:

  • This synthy slow burner finds Brown attempting to convince a girl to embark on a relationship with him after meeting her in a club. The song was debuted by the singer at the 2014 BET Awards on June 29, 2014. It was his first performance after spending two and a half months in prison, as a result of getting involved in a fight outside a hotel in Washington DC.
  • Usher and Rick Ross both contribute verses to the track. Brown and Rozay had collaborated multiple times before on songs like DJ Khaled's "Take It To The Head" and the remix of his own tune "Deuces," but this was the first time he'd worked with Usher.
  • Ross' closing verse has a baseball theme with references to the late New York Yankees owner, George Steinbrenner, and famous Yankee players Babe Ruth, Derek Jeter and Yogi Berra.
