Brooklyn rapper Fabolous has carved out a long and successful career by combining melodic mainstream singles with a series of mixtapes, which have enabled him to maintain his relationship with his street fanbase. This song was one of his most commercial releases, which Fabolous later admitted to The Boombox he originally had mixed feelings about. Said the New York rapper: "At the time, I thought it was a little too soft to be released as a single. It was more female friendly, but the crazy part is it became one of those joints that guys would dedicate to their chicks."
He added: "In real life not everybody is hardcore and gangsta all day. We have girlfriends, too. Maybe 'Into You' wasn't a song that you rolled around bumping in your hood, but when you were with your lady you turned it up in the car. I've also heard plenty of dudes in jail say that they've dedicated a song or two of mines to their ladies. So I think those female friendly songs can work on that level."
Whilst R&B artist Tamia features on the single version, Ashanti is the vocalist on the rendering found on the album.
The song samples the chorus of Tamia's song "So Into You" from her self-titled 1998 album, which itself samples the Commodores' track, "Say Yeah."
American actress and former fashion model K.D. Aubert plays Fabolous' love interest in the song's music video.
