  • Spanish Harlem born Lumidee (born Lumidee Cedeno) hooked up with producer DJ Tedsmooth to record this for his independent Straight Face label. When it became the number one request on many New York City radio stations, Universal Records promptly signed Lumidee up.
  • Lumidee has claimed that her vocals sound off key because DJ Tedsmooth had her cut the song with a different backing track than the Dancehall reggae-based Diwali rhythm he later added. >>
