Good Good Night

Album: The Juice (2011)
Charted: 91

Songfacts®:

  • This is the third single from American rapper Roscoe Dash's debut album, The Juice. The dirty version, which you are unlikely to hear on your local radio station, is called "Good F--kin' Night." The song was released on October 4, 2011.
  • Despite the song's radio friendly electronic influence, Roscoe Dash didn't always see it as a potential hit. "When I first did the song 'Good Good Night,' I loved the song but I didn't think it should be my first single until I went back in and added some stuff to the hook," he told Billboard magazine. "I try to make every verse different with beat patterns and no repetitiveness whatsoever. 'Good Good Night' is a new sound and new energy where there's not a 'break your neck, bob your head' [type of sound], but just feel good music."
  • Florida producer Kane Beatz supplied the song's beat. He has production credits on a number of hit singles including ones by Young Money ("BedRock"), Trey Songz ("Bottoms Up") and Nicki Minaj ("Super Bass").
  • The EP title stands for "Just Understand I Control Everything." Dash told The Boombox his intention was to highlight the diversity of the record. He explained: "I've been a very big feature artist for the last year-and-a-half and people only know me for doing the hooks and being the clean-up guy, last verse type of thing. I felt like I needed to stand up on my own two feet and show people that I can do more than just that and do more than just the club thing, slow tempo with all the bass."
