This is a bonus track on the Walmart and Japanese editions of Purpose. The song was produced by Skrillez, who also helmed five tunes on the album's standard edition. He recalled to NME: "Justin had so much input in this, and it's one of my favorite ones too. It's so poppy and hard-hitting at the same time. It's a perfect summer song. It goes into this weird, half time drop, and is really poppy and fun. Something we definitely need right now in music."
When "Nothin' On You" reached #1 on the Hot 100, B.o.B became the first American act whose name is a palindrome to top the chart. The other two who did so prior to the Atlanta rapper were both Scandinavian groups - ABBA and A-Ha.
