  • Lyrics
  • This uptempo Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis-produced track features Missy Elliott. This isn't the first time that the pair have worked together: Elliott previously featured on Jackson's 2001 song "Son of a Gun (I Betcha Think This Song Is About You)" and 2008 tune "The 1."

    "Working with Janet is unbelievable. Although we are great friends and have been for so long, I am still her biggest fan," Elliott said. "Sometimes, I still have to pinch myself when I call her and she picks up the phone or texts me because she is still Janet Jackson! The superstar that I would run to the TV to watch her videos and dance moves, so for me I'm honored to be on any Janet record. I'm humbled whenever she asks because she inspires and continues to inspire me, always!"
  • The song was first debuted on the August 31, 2015 opening night of Jackson's Unbreakable World Tour at the Rogers Arena in Vancouver.
