  • Lyrics
  • This song introduces L'Renee, who's signed to Kem's Kemistry Records imprint. He explained to Billboard magazine in a 2014 interview what attracted him to the songstress. "I'm looking further down the line trying to be someone who's gong to carry the torch for R&B," Kem said. "Look at the charts: Even our R&B is dominated by dudes. [Laughs] You've got Tamar Braxton and Ledisi in there, but it's dominated by dudes. A lot of times you have people who are great singers who don't have great songs."

    "I'm coming from the mindset of Patti Labelle and Gladys Knight and giving you that aspect of R&B," he continued. "And I think she's the perfect artist to lay that out. We definitely want to make an impact."
