Main songwriter Nick Jonas told The London Times May 18, 2009 that he penned this address to a combative girlfriend out of personal experience. He explained: "It was about this relationship. This person kept on fighting, and making out like it was world war three, when it was really a one-sided battle. It was just them coming at you, and you don't really have any problem." Nick's comments got the bloggers guessing whether the combative ex that he is referring to is Miley Cyrus with whom he had a two-year relationship.
Nick Jonas initially intended this to be recorded by his side project Nick Jonas & the Administration.
Until December 5, 1998, a song had to be issued as a single to make the Hot 100. Aaliyah's "Try Again" was the first tune to top the chart based on airplay alone, without any sales figures being included.
"Islands in the Stream" was originally written by The Bee Gees as an R&B song. It was originally written by the brothers for Marvin Gaye, however it was recorded instead as a duet by Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton with the Gibb Brothers also contributing vocals.
