  • This is the first single from American rapper Gucci Mane's second album, The State vs. Radric Davis.
  • The song about a show-stoppin' girl in a club features the vocals of R&B artist Usher. Usher also appears in the song's music video, which was directed by Benny Boom. Gucci's leading lady is played by Bria Murphy, daughter of Hollywood superstar Eddie Murphy.
  • Polow Da Don provided the beat. He told MTV News that the song came about because Gucci wanted to experiment: "He did the hard part," Polow said. "He owns the streets right now. All I did was what was easy for me - take what he's built and capitalize off it. We work hand-in-hand because I understand the pop side and I understand the street side and I'm from Atlanta. Usher, Gucci, Polow, it is what it is. It was a natural vibe. Me and Gucci did a bunch of records. That's like my boy, we talk every day. So we went in and made some records. [Gucci] was like, 'I wanna do something crazy, something the people won't expect.'"
  • Polow told MTV News it was easy to get Usher onboard once he and Gucci laid the foundation. Said Polow: "One night me and Usher were hanging out, listening to records. Gucci did some songs with Usher for his album anyway, so Usher was going to do something for his album. He heard the record and wanted to do it. It was on some kicking it and vibing. It just happened."
