Fat Joe told MTV News about this song: "'Congratulations' - I had to do this joint. [It felt like] Harlem, 2 in the morning, that two-step vibe - that feel-good vibe. You never heard me flow like that before. That's what I try to do. My new high is changing my flows. So much you could do, nine albums, Terror Squad albums, Big Pun albums - how could I do something new? I'm trying to create new flows from me. It's about, 'Everybody wants to be famous, but be careful what you wish for. Congratulations, you're famous, but now you gotta cut your hair off like Britney.' It's a lot that comes with living your life under the media."
