Jennifer Hudson recorded over 40 songs for the album, but only around a third made it onto the CD. This was one of the first ones she set down.
Hudson told Los Angeles Times August 20 2008 about this gospel-flavored track with a futuristic beat. Said Hudson: "It was produced by Tank [a.k.a. Durrell Babbs]. I'm a huge fan of his, and I thought the song was a great idea. I love the feeling of it. It's very modern, but it has the elements of R&B."
"Friends In Low Places" by Garth Brooks was written by two Nashville songwriters after a meal in a local restaurant. One of them forgot his money, but said not to worry, "I have friends in low places. I know the cook."
