The song features a rapped contribution from New York hip-hop artist, Nas. Furtado paid tribute to her collaborator during an interview with Artist Direct
: "When you're a pop artist making records and their influenced by urban music, that question comes to mind a lot, "Can we get a rapper on this song?," she said. "I think every artist's first choice is always Nas [Laughs]. Nas liked the track and he got on it. It wasn't until I was writing the lyrics out for this album on the liner notes that I asked Salaam to send me Nas's rap. It's one thing hearing him rap, but when you see his words on paper, you realize just what a poet he truly is."
