This song was premiered by the English disc jockey-record producer Mark Ronson July 30, 2013 during his live set at the Boiler Room. The song had previously been performed by Brown at live events, however Ronson grabbed the studio version of "Dip."
The song samples Freak Nasty's 1996 single "Da Dip" and also contains a interpolation of Jay-Z and Kanye West's "Niggas in Paris."
In The Beatles "When I'm 64," Paul McCartney asks a woman if she'll still be there for him when he's 64. In 2006, he got his answer when shortly before his 64th birthday, he and Heather Mills separated.
