The song features compositional aid from the S.O.S. Band's 1983 single "Tell Me If You Still Care" and also from the 1973 Little Feat song "Fool Yourself." In our 2012 interview with Kirk Franklin
, he explained why he borrowed from those songs: "I just thought they would be cute ear candy, like what if I use a little sample of something. For me it's always ear candy. And I just thought it would be really cool for the bridge of the song to be this familiar R&B song that everybody remembered. A lot of times when you're communicating a message like mine - which for the most part is a question - it's sometimes easier to digest or get that message across when you use familiarity. So that's what I was trying to do."
