  • Lyrics
  • This is the first single from R&B singer Jamie Foxx's fourth studio album, Best Night of My Life. The song was produced by and features Justin Timberlake and has a guest spot from rapper T.I.
  • Foxx described working with Timberlake to talk show host George Lopez: "I get into the studio, this dude produces three tracks for me. It is absolutely crazy and I had to bow down. The way I got him on the track—'cause he wasn't gonna get on the track—I just literally said, 'Man, my people suffered for 500 years. You owe me this.'"
  • Foxx and Timberlake anchored the "Win or Go Home" cinema marketing initiative for the 2010 NBA playoff promotional campaign, which coincided with this hoops-referencing song's digital release. Foxx said he hoped their collaboration will "play throughout the NBA finals."
  • The track reunites Justin Timberlake and T.I., who previously worked together on Tip's hit "Dead and Gone" and Timberlake's 2006 chart-topper "My Love."
