This is the lead single from R&B artist Jaheim's fifth studio album, Another Round.
The song borrows from the Whatnauts' 1982 R&B single, "Help Is on the Way," which was previously sampled by De La Soul for their 1991 single, "Ring Ring Ring (Ha Ha Hey)."
Jaheim co-wrote this with Balewa Muhammad, Eritza Laues, Marcella Brailsford and Keir Gist (also known as Kaygee), the last of whom produced the song. The singer told Billboard magazine how the song originated in a club: "We'd been holed up in the studio and needed to get some air," Jaheim recalled. "So we went to a club and this little thing was running across the floor. And I said, 'Girl, you know what? I'm not leaving here without you.' From there, the boys put it together."
Ronnie Dunn wrote "Boot Scootin' Boogie" before he teamed up with Kix Brooks to form Brooks & Dunn. It was originally recorded by the country group Asleep At The Wheel, but Brooks & Dunn did it themselves when it got its own line dance.
