Iglesias' long-time friend and labelmate Nicole Scherzinger is a featured vocalist on this track. The Latin singer specifically wrote this song for the former Pussycat Doll. He recalled to MTV News, "We spoke some time ago about working together, and that was fun."
"Islands in the Stream" was originally written by The Bee Gees as an R&B song. It was originally written by the brothers for Marvin Gaye, however it was recorded instead as a duet by Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton with the Gibb Brothers also contributing vocals.
"Pretty In Pink" by Psychedelic Furs was released in 1981. Five years later, it inspired a movie of the same name starring Molly Ringwald, Andrew McCarthy and Jon Cryer. The song was remixed for the re-release to have more Pop appeal.
