This is the opening track from Nothing, the fourth studio album by American funk rock band N.E.R.D. The song features American rapper T.I.
Drummer Shay Haley told MTV News that the track was inspired by a hard-partying night in Europe. "We were in Monaco, and we were looking around, and we were just seeing how people were having a great time and you couldn't tell them s--t. It was like 5 in the morning, and you would have thought it was like 1," he said. "People were partying just as hard, so we were like, 'Whoa.'"
Until December 5, 1998, a song had to be issued as a single to make the Hot 100. Aaliyah's "Try Again" was the first tune to top the chart based on airplay alone, without any sales figures being included.
"Here Comes Your Man" is the closest the Pixies came to a hit in America. It was rumored to be about a drug dealer, but Black Francis says it's just a story about some hobos who travel by train and die in an earthquake.
