  • Jay-Z contributes a guest vocal to this number. Thicke told MTV News that he still can't believe he got the Jiggaman to join him on a track.

He added that the collaboration was incredible. "To work with him was a dream come true. It was one of the best days of my life."
  • Thicke said to MTV News that the track hearkens back to the soulful hip-hop from the early '90s. "[It's] kind of like a De La Soul kind of song, but he [Jay-Z] was really excited about it."
