The lead single from Ne-Yo's Non Fiction album finds the singer returning to his R&B roots. Ne-Yo said that the sound of the record was, "99.999998 percent R&B." He added: "I can't completely abandon that fanbase, because, as I said, they kept the lights on for a very long time."
This song, like the rest of the LP is based on an actual experience. Ne-Yo said. "The album is composed of songs based on true stories from my fans, family and my life."
This features a couple of rapped verses by Jeezy. Previous collaborations between the pair include "Leave You Alone," the fifth single from the then Young Jeezy's album, Motivation 103: Hustlerz Ambition.
