  • Lyrics
  • This song is a duet with Beyoncé 's sister, Solange. "She's been a friend for a while," vocalist Dave Macklovitch told HMV.com. "We had her on our last album but she just sang a hook. Between then and now, Solange the solo artist really blossomed, so we wanted to have her on again, in that capacity. We wanted a full on duet with her, a co-write. So we went to her place and spent the night writing and recording together."
