  • Lyrics
  • This song, which evokes the blissful realm of young love, was inspired by the way Nick Cannon proposed to Mariah Carey. He got her a "ring pop" - the boiled sweets that can be worn as a ring. While Mariah was sucking it, it broke open to reveal a ring, at which point Nick got on his knees and proposed. >>

  • The song samples the 1994 West Coast hip hop single "Back in the Day" by Ahmad, who was 18 when he recorded it.
