This song features CJ, a young musician from Baltimore that Saadiq has been working with, and some harmonica from Stevie Wonder, who needs no introduction. Saadiq talked about his collaboration with the Motown superstar on his website: "When we first did the track, I had this spot where we said, 'Please invite Mr. Stevie Wonder to my album' the way Stevie did with Dizzy Gillespie on one of his records. Originally, Stevie wasn't on it but I felt like he should be there. I ended up calling him and he came over to the studio in an hour! I still can't get used to Stevie Wonder being my friend."
Carla Thomas became the first woman to achieve a Top 10 hit on the Hot 100 with a song she wrote herself when "Gee Whiz (Look At His Eyes)" reached the chart's top tier in 1961. Thomas was just 16-years-old when she penned it.
