  • This features Chris Brown. Banner said in his press release: "Chris Brown is like my little brother. It's been amazing for me to watch him grow as both an artist and a man. I knew from the beginning, that I wanted him on this track."
  • Chris Brown spoke to MTV News about recording this song with Banner: "Me and Banner are real close. We did the movie This Christmas and working [on the set], he said, 'I got this record that if you get on, I think it will be great.' I told him I didn't want to do a typical R&B record - I don't wanna do the hook-kinda thing that every other R&B artist does. I would more like to be in tune with the verse or do a verse almost like I'm rapping, but singing it. I recorded the song in [Virginia], he said, 'Oh word, that's dope.'"
  • Young Joc also contributes to this track and the Georgia rapper appears in the music video along with Chris Brown.
  • This was also produced by Chris Banner. The Mississippi rapper explained on his press release: "I'm a real producer, not simply a beat-maker. When I'm in the studio, I'm thinking beyond just samples, I'm trying to build something special. Unlike a lot of other people, I'm still a fan of music and it's that fan in me that I'm making music for."
