This samples "I Want You Back" by The Jackson 5. It is so similar it is considered an "adaptation."
Romeo was 11 years-old when this song came out, and he became very popular with the young ladies. This was the target audience, as his lyrics were very clean and his raps were about getting good grades and how girls like him. Romeo was not able to follow up this song's success, but he went on to USC, where he played basketball.
This was produced by Romeo's father, the rapper and record mogul Master P. They used to listen to "I Want You Back" when Romeo was younger.
Romeo was touring with N'Sync when this became a hit.
Phil Oakey recorded his vocals for "Don't You Want Me" in the studio bathroom. The recording was disrupted by guitarist Jo Callis reaching through an open window from outside to repeatedly flush one of the toilets.
