This song finds R. Kelly using a remote control as a metaphor for sex. He explained the song's creation to The Boombox: "I went and got a remote out of my living room and took it down to my studio, and I said, 'I'm gonna write a song about the remote control. As I looked at the buttons, I would try to figure out how to relate these buttons to metaphors as far as music and lyrics and put them in a song. I started seeing the buttons like 'control,' 'volume,' 'mute' and things like that, and I said, 'Wow. I can make this a song.' Once I started it just kept on going, and it just kept working for me. The metaphors just started coming together."
