Album: Folie à Deux (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • Lil Wayne contributes to this funky, hip-hop tinged track. In a video interview, bassist Pete Wentz told the New Musical Express that the rapper's contribution is not what people would expect. He added: "It's not rapping he's actually singing the part, which is pretty cool."
  • This is a track from Fall Out Boy's fourth studio album and, with its guest star Lil Wayne, follows suit with the band's efforts to incorporate more genres into their signature pop-punk style - which wasn't well-received by FOB purists. Wayne also features on a remix of the single "America's Suitehearts."
  • In a 2011 interview with the Chicago Tribune, Fall Out Boy frontman Patrick Stump recalled how the collaboration with Wayne came together. "I remember we were working on that record right before [Kanye West's album] 808s and Heartbreak and all that stuff came out, and we were like, 'Man, it'd be awesome if we got an MC singing.' Because some of these guys can sing and it'd be really cool to have somebody singing on a rock record. Usually you get the hip-hop guest and you have him do a verse. It'd be cool - Lil Wayne isn't exclusively into rhyming, he also likes musicality and melody."
