Dave Matthews explained to Relix magazine: "I wrote that song while I was sitting on a boat with my wife and kids and some friends, writing the lyrics on my iPhone while we went across this lake. It's a nice goodbye for the record. Because there's been a lot of dark stuff, I thought that, at the end, it deserved a really straightforward song about hope."
The Dave Matthews Band performed the song live at the 2010 Grammy Awards. The resulting online sales enabled the song to debut at #57 on the Billboard Hot 100.
"I Just Wanna Love U (Give It 2 Me) " borrows four bars from Notorious B.I.G's "The World Is Filled." Jay-Z and Biggie Smalls attended Westinghouse Career and Technical Education High School in Brooklyn, New York at the same time.
Pete Townshend never had a #1 UK hit with The Who or as a solo artist, but he did produce and play on a song that hit the top spot there: "Something In The Air" by Thunderclap Newman, a group he assembled.
