Songfacts®:

  • This is the second single from American R&B singer, Jeremih's, self-titled debut album.
  • In an interview with djbooth.net, Jeremih was asked if he wakes up in the mornings feeling like "a star" or "an average Joe." He replied: "I've always kinda felt like an average Joe—no, I'm above average, I'm an above-average Joe. [laughs] I don't know, I feel like people will say, "You turned Hollywood," 'cause that's how they wanna make you feel; I feel normal still, and if they're makin' me feel different it's because that's what what they're doin'. But I'm a cool dude, I stay in touch with all my friends. It's not like I'm acting any differently, it's just kind hard when you're on the road all the time and not able to be home as much."
  • American music video director Marc Klasfled directed the song's promo. It features Jeremih dreaming about life before stardom.
