Songfacts®:

  • During an interview with Chelsea Handler on Chelsea Lately, Thicke explained that he wrote this song after his actress wife, Paula Patton, refused to have sex with him one week when she was busy on set. "I was losing my mojo," he revealed. "I was taking care of the baby - we have a new year-and-a-half-old son, Julian... After a week or so, I wasn't gettin' none... I was like, I need to make a song that's gonna put her in some lingerie."
