  • Kanye West produced this. The Chicago rapper also contributed towards the production of "Tie My Hands," "Shoot Me Down," and "Let The Beat Build" on this album.
  • Engineer Andrews "Drew" Correa told Rhapsody about this track: "When Kanye came through with 20 beats on a beat CD, Babyface was already on it. 'Let the Beat Build' was also on that same CD. Wayne heard ['Comfortable'] and was like, 'Oh my God, I love it.' Kanye left the CD and we recorded in L.A. at the Record Plant. It was done in mid-2006. [Wayne's] a huge Babyface fan. When he got that record he was like, 'I need to do this because Babyface is a legend, and not that many hip-hop artists [are] doing s--t with Babyface.' This was the only song he used on Tha Carter III that leaked."
  • This song lyrically references Beyonce's 2006 hit "Irreplaceable."
