  • Jordin Sparks wrote this song with Elijah Blake, who also co-penned Usher's hit single "Climax." It was produced by Salaam Remi, who is known for his association with Nas, Amy Winehouse and Fergie.
  • Sparks told Billboard magazine: "It was inspired by my mom always texting me 'Make a wish' at 11:11 in the morning or at night. It's really sweet when somebody's thinking of you like that."
