  • Lyrics
  • This track from American Hip Hop artist Nelly's sixth studio album, Nelly 5.0, features former Destiny Child's singer Kelly Rowland. The pair previously collaborated on the 2002 chart-topper "Dilemma."
  • The song was written by Cornell Haynes and Rico Love and produced by Jim Jonsin.
  • Nelly told MTV News that whilst the song isn't a sequel to "Dilemma," it is an "update." "I don't want to say it's a sequel. I don't want to diminish anything with 'Dilemma' or have an expectation you can't live up to when you do that," he explained. "When you do that type of thing, there's people who are already, 'I don't wanna hear it. It's supposed to be "Dilemma." ' You already being negative [before] pushing the button!"

    "It's one of those things where we did reconnect," he continued. "Our chemistry has already proven to be good, whether it was onstage or in the studio. It was something that we wanted to reconnect with. It was produced by Jim Jonsin. It's a cool joint. I think people will get it. It can never be 'Dilemma,' but we wanted to extend the story. It's continuing the story a little bit more, seeing her again."
