Kingston described this to Blues and Soul magazine as "just a fun song that uses the New Edition 'Candy Girl' sample."
Wyclef Jean produced and features on this track. Kingston told Blues and Soul magazine about his collaboration with the ex Fugee artist: "Working with him was AMAZING! Because we're both from the West Indies, and he's like this reggae/ cultural typea guy who's also really big on melodies. Which is dope, because a great song without a great melody is not gonna go ANYWHERE! You know, a lotta people sometimes don't even LISTEN to the words! They just wanna chill out, hum and sing along! And Wyclef is really good at just making great, sing-along music that people can have fun with."
The bedrock of David Guetta's Nicki Minaj-featuring single "Hey Mama" is a sample of "Rosie," a 1940s prison recording from folk archivist Alan Lomax that songwriter Esther Dean first showed the French DJ on YouTube.
