  • Lyrics
  • This is a single and title track from Los Angeles born R&B singer-songwriter Miguel's debut album. The song was produced by Salam Remi and features Roc Nation rapper J Cole.
  • Miguel told MTV News how the collaboration with Cole came about: "I didn't get to be in the studio with J. Cole. I recorded the song, and Mark Pitts at Jive - who happens to be a part of J. Cole's management as well - I remember the call. It was 3 o'clock in the morning, and Mark called me like, 'Yo, it's crazy! I'mma play it for Cole.' He played it for him, and Cole said he liked it."
  • The singer told MTV News about the song's music video: "The video was really dope," said Miguel. "The director worked with me on the treatment. It was really his concept on the treatment, but I sent him some references, and he did a really good job at putting it together and making sure it was smart, but it wasn't too smart. We wanted to have some nostalgic qualities, a hip-hop base, but still wanted to give it an edgy flair."
