Songfacts®:

  • This is one of two tunes on Talk a Good Game written by The-Dream (Justin Bieber's "Baby," Rihanna's "Umbrella" and Beyoncé's "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on it)). Rowland also supplied vocals on "Where Have You Been?" a track off The-Dream's IV Play album. "We bonded over the holidays, in December," he told Billboard magazine. "We just became great friends. We are really similar in so many ways. Her and Bey' are like sisters to me. We just bonded over songs. She's on my album and I worked on two for her album, 'Skywalker,' and another I wrote for her, 'Dirty Laundry,' [which] has a lot of her insight and it's pretty intense."
