Songfacts®:

  • On this track Thicke pays homage to the Eric B & Rakim's song "Mahogany" from their 1990 album, Let the Rhythm Hit 'Em. He does so by flipping the original song's lyrics of "Her name was Mahogany, her friend's name was Ebony," with, "I said, 'My name is Rob, and this is Jay-Z.'"
  • Thicke told MTV News that Jay-Z, who did a guest verse on another Sex Therapy track, "Meiplé," loved it. Said Thicke: "Before anybody else heard it, Jay-Z heard it, and he said, 'That's genius. That's genius on so many levels.' He said, 'First of all, who do you think you are? Who do you think you are, doing Rakim? You got ba--s, boy.' "
