  • This song, where a woman asks her former boyfriend for forgiveness for leaving him, was written by Akon together with Claude Kelly and Giorgio Tuinfort. Akon also produced the track.
  • This was one of two brand new tracks that Lewis recorded for the US release of Spirit. It was also an added song on the album's Deluxe edition in other territories.
  • The song's music video features Lewis dancing in four different set-ups, each inspired by a different Hollywood musical. The musicals in question are West Side Story, Cabaret, Singin' In The Rain and Carousel. MTV's 2008 America's Best Dance Crew winners, the JabbaWockeeZ feature in the Cabaret segment.
