Songfacts®:

  • This acoustic guitar-led mid-tempo ballad was one of the very last songs Michael was working on before his death. He had planned to unveil it while in London for the O2 arena shows in Summer 2009, but days before he was due to begin the residency the singer suffered his fatal heart attack after being given two powerful sedatives by his personal doctor Conrad Murray.
  • Former Ne-Yo cohort Theron "Neff-U" Feemster produced the breezy song. He said to Billboard magazine: "You can't help but smile when you hear it."
