This is a duet with No Doubt lead singer Gwen Stefani. It was Stefani's second appearance in a row on a duet, after being featured in Moby's remix of "South Side." Stefani was looking to get her solo career going, and her label boss at Interscope Records, Jimmy Iovine, put her together with producer Dr. Dre to work on this track. Under Iovine's guidance, Stefani did very well with and without No Doubt: her 2004 debut solo album, Love.Angel.Music.Baby, was a huge hit. At the time, however, Eve was much better known as a solo artist.
This beat-driven track was written by four producers: Dr. Dre (credited as Andre Young), Stevie J, Scott Storch and Mike Elizondo. Dr. Dre produced the song, which was an interesting pairing considering his history with Eve. He had originally signed Eve to his Aftermath label, then dropped her after 8 months, with the lady rapper releasing her #1 charting debut album, Let There Be Eve... Ruff Ryders' First Lady, on the Ruff Ryders label. While recording this song, Dre and Eve constantly argued in the studio and still managed to produce a hit.
After this successful collaboration, Eve returned the favor by appearing on the Gwen Stefani song "Rich Girl
" from her Love Angel Music Baby
