Album: Once Again (2006)


  • This song is about a groupie who is into famous guys. She name drops and is in love with the image of the singer she sees on stage and on TV but doesn't care to know him as a person. He realizes she is that kind of girl and that she is using him for his fame, but he still wants her and he's faced with a question to let her go. >>

  • Legend met his model partner Chrissy Teigen on this song's video shoot (she plays his dream girl). He recalled to UK Cosmopolitan magazine "It was kind of touchy-feely and like a very backwards introduction - before we even knew each other, we were feeling each other up! So that helped break the ice. It wasn't a proper date but it was sexy."
