  • Hilson addressed the song and its steamy video in a live-stream interview with Perez Hilton. The singer said the sentiment reflected in the song is exactly what her girls are apt to shout behind closed doors: "I don't want to make love tonight. Just f--- me, please!" She added, "I'm a freak, it's no surprise. I've been a freak on other songs ... and other videos."

    Hilson went on to explain that while her other songs such as "Pretty Girl Rock" show one side of a woman, she attempted to show the many different moods and shifting desires a female has on this cut. "Perez, I don't want to be held and caressed every night. ... I'm talking about one man in the relationship. I'm not talking about being a slut and a whore," she said, before admitting, "It is racy."
  • The chanting of "f--k me, f--k me" on the chorus of the single release was replaced by a clean version on No Boys Allowed.
