  • According to promotional materials, this collaboration with R&B singer Ciara is inspired by "love and loss."
  • This was produced by RedOne who also co-wrote the song with songwriter Frankie Storm and Iglesias. RedOne is best known for his work with Lady Gaga ("Just Dance," "Poker Face").
  • Another version of this upbeat dance track was recorded featuring German singer Sarah Connor rather than Ciara. This was released in some European countries including Germany and Poland.
  • Iglesias debuted the song on the French TV show Star Academy. He performed it as a duet with one of the contestants, Gaultier. The performance propelled the song into the Top 3 of the French singles chart.
