  • Lyrics
  • Fat Joe told MTV News that his happy marriage was an inspiration for this song about finding that special soul mate. He explained: "It's inspired by life a lot. As I listen to it, I think about the relationship with my wife and how we came a long way. At the same time, it's everybody's life. It's the working man's life. It's related to everybody. Everybody feels that way. We all want somebody."
  • This song features the Senegalese-American rapper/singer Akon. Joe told MTV News: "Akon, it was an honor to work with him. We've been friends for years and featured on tracks together. We finally got our own record together."
