Songfacts®:

  • This song features a hook up with Natasha Bedingfield. The English pop singer-songwriter discussed her contribution to this song in an interview with Billboard magazine: "With Nicki, I come from London and we've got a heavy influence in hip-hop. She called me and was like, 'I'd love for you to sing on this. I'm a huge fan,' and I was instantly like, 'I'll do this.' I heard the song she'd written and it gave me goosebumps. I was like, 'I've got to be on that.' I was in Detroit, doing some promotion, so I went into Eminem's studio and it was amazing, really catching off Eminem's vibe. He wasn't there, but his studio is great."
  • The NewYork Post reported that Minaj only recruited Bedingfield one week before the release of the album. A source told the newspaper: "Nicki Minaj phoned Natasha Bedingfield a week before her album Pink Friday was about to drop, to say they should duet on Minaj's Last Chance."
    The source added that Bedingfield was "so excited" to hear from Minaj, but initially expressed concern that she wouldn't be able to record the song in time as she was on tour. The English singer then managed to find a gap in her diary in order to record her part after she decided that she loved the tune.
