Songfacts®:

  • Over an ominous DJ Mustard beat, this song finds Nelly singing sexually-laced rhymes aimed at the ladies. Jeremih croons the raunchy chorus, which borrows from Marvin Gaye's 1982 hit "Sexual Healing."
  • Jeremih has had previous success half-sampling old hits. The R&B singer previously interpolated Snap!'s "Rhythm Is A Dancer" for his own single "Don't Tell 'Em" and Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)" on the hook of Natalie La Rose's smash "Somebody."
  • The song featured on an episode of Nelly's BET reality show, Nellyville, which showed the artists recording the tune in the studio.
  • The music video was directed by Aristotle and filmed at the historic Sheats Goldstein Residence in Beverly Crest, Los Angeles. Nelly plays a therapist in the clip, which also co-stars his girlfriend Shantel Jackson.
