Songfacts®:

  • On this Polow Da Don produced track, Brown is assisted by R&B singer Trey Songz and rapper the Game. Songz told MTV News about the collaboration: "The record me and Chris got is a fun record, produced by Polow Da Don. [Chris] told me to stop by the studio one night. We was in L.A., I was about to lay it down. He told me to come through. I hadn't seen him in a while. He put this beat on, we started playing around with a crazy concept - just having fun for real. I wasn't sure if he was gonna keep the record, because it was done just out of fun. When I tell you I came by last minute and we cut it real quick - very quick. He's keeping it. It's gonna be a great look."
  • Brown told MTV News "This is a collaboration between me, Trey Songz and Game. Polow Da Don produced it. Me and Polo, we got a lot of different joint ventures. Different rock groups and different groups... Polo and I have been friends for a minute, so we always be hanging out, and I was like 'Yo man, I gotta get in the studio, let's do some crazy records.' I was always writing with him, like I did the 'Stronger' record he did, with me and Mary J. Blige - me and [Ester] Dean wrote that record. Like, we've always been working in the studio, writing with him, so when it came time to do my album, he already had some joints in mind for me. He had the beats and we just went right to it. Trey Songz wrote his verse, Game did his, but I wrote the chorus and my verse."
