Songfacts®:

  • The first single from American R&B artist Jill Scott's fourth album was added to radio on April 12, 2011 and released to iTunes on April 26, 2011.
  • The song features soul singer Anthony Hamilton. The pair exalt about being in each other's company. "I see you 'cross the room/ Talking to some men/ I love your mannerisms, babe/ The way you handle them/ Oh, I'm so proud to be with you/ So attracted to you too," Scott sings.

It was Scott's first #1 album in the US and meant she joined Susan Boyle (2009-10), India.Arie (2006) and Judy Garland (1961) as the only women to top the Billboard album chart without ever having banked a top 40 Hot 100 hit.
