Play Video

Songfacts®:

  • This smooth number finds Mack Wilds wishing he could fall in love like it was in the 1990s when "TLC weren't 2 proud 2 beg" and "Keith made you sweat." He also references several other R&B songs of the era such as Jodeci's "Forever My Lady."
  • The song features production from some legendary hip-hop and R&B producers. Salaam Remi [Nas, Amy Winehouse], Teddy Riley [Michael Jackson, Keith Sweat], Scott Storch [Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg], and James Poyser [The Roots, Mariah Carey, D'Angelo, Erykah Badu] all collaborated to create its '90s-influenced sound.
  • This was released as the first single from Wilds' second album. There was heightened interest in the song as it was dropped a few weeks after the American singer and actor starred in Adele's 2015 music video for "Hello."
