  • Justin ended his 'Music Mondays' series with this tribute to a confident girl who has got 'it.' The song is a collaboration with Chance The Rapper, who has previously worked with Lil Wayne, Childish Gambino and James Blake.

    Chancelor Bennett, aka Chance The Rapper, grew up on the south side Chicago. His 2012 debut mixtape, 10 Day, was recorded during a two-week suspension from high school, and gained him recognition within the local scene. Chance's second mixtape, Acid Rap, was downloaded 50,000 times the day it was released and sparked a multi-million-dollar bidding war between major labels. He was named 2013's Hot MC by Rolling Stone and Rapper of the Year by Spin magazine.
  • Justin explained to MTV News' Christina Garibaldi this is a song all about "sexual romancing."
  • The song's music video was filmed in December 2013 by director Colin Tilley, who who has worked with Justin on previous promos including the ones for "Never Let You Go," "U Smile" and "All That Matters." The visual finds the singer pursuing a confident girl with some corny pick up lines. She is played by Cailin Russo, the same blonde who also starred in Justin's "All That Matters" clip.
