Songfacts®:

  • This single from Eric Bellinger's first major label project, Cuffing Season, has a '90s R&B mindset. Bellinger told Artist Direct: "Lyrically, it is about an intimate evening with your lady and turning it up with that special person."
  • When engineers working on the very first iPod completed the prototype, they showed it to Steve Jobs for his approval. He dropped the iPod in an aquarium and used the air bubbles to prove there was empty space and it could be made smaller.

    In 2001 Apple Computer launched its iPod portable player. The first iPod cost $399 when introduced. It had 5 GB of storage - worth about 1,000 songs - and only connected with Macs.
