This song, which features the rapper T.I., was co-written and produced by the hitmaking team of The-Dream and Tricky Stewart.
Foxx explained to The Independent newspaper the inspiration behind his Man's Intuition album: "On my radio show I have this panel of beautiful women and they were talking about how men with a lot of money aren't all that. But if a guy has no money, that's no good either. So I was thinking, 'What does a man have to do? What does a woman want?' We go from there and build the story and the songs."
"Thinking About You" was the ninth track from Calvin Harris' 18 Months album to enter the UK singles Top 10. No other artist has obtained so many hits from one LP - Michael Jackson was the previous record holder with seven Top 10 tunes from both his Bad and Dangerous sets.
