  • This samples Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff's composition "Come Go With Me," which was recorded by Teddy Pendergrass in 1979. Also sampled is Labelle's 1976 recording of "Isn't It A Shame" and DeBarge's 1982 recording of "I Like It." It's the second time a Nelly chart hit used the latter: "Ride Wit Me," from his first album, Country Grammar, also borrowed from "I Like It."
  • This was released as a double A-side with "Flap Your Wings" in the UK and New Zealand and was also #1 in Australia.
  • This features R&B singer Jaheim. Nelly comments in 1000 UK #1 Hits by Jon Kutner and Spencer Leigh, "I knew I had to get Jaheim on the track. He is like the Teddy Pendergrass of our day. He is a crooner and sings with real emotion." >>

  • Nelly shows his sensitive side on this song, as he sings about being there for a girl and how he feels bad for anything he's done to hurt her.
