Songfacts®:

  • This previously unreleased track was the first single from Destiny's Child's compilation of romantic tunes, Love Songs. It was their first new song in eight years - the girls' previous recording together was the 2004 album Destiny Fulfilled.
  • Songwriting credits go to Michelle Williams of Destiny's Child, Roc Nation singer-songwriter James Fauntleroy (Jordin Sparks'"No Air," Rihanna's Te Amo") and Flipmode Squad member Lonny Bereal, who also handled vocal production with Beyonce. Pharrell Williams produced the tune.
  • The throwback R&B cut's shuffling beat was borrowed from Lyn Collins' 1972 single, "Think (About It)." The much sampled track turns up on many other classic tunes including Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock's 1988 cut "It Takes Two," Janet Jackson's 1990 hit "Alright" and the Black Eyed Peas' tune "Rock That Body."
