Songfacts®:

  • This is the third single from Sean Kingston's third studio album Back 2 Life. "It's like at the end of the day, most of the songs [on the album], I write off of experiences and situations I've been through," he told MTV News. "Who doesn't wish to have love, meet a girl or meet a guy, and just have that type of [relationship] that can last through different seasons?" The song was premiered on August 9, 2013.
  • To ensure the song was club-ready, Kingston sampled Juicy J's "Bandz A Make Her Dance." He said, "To the pre-hook, that's where I was feeling the strip-club vibe, where I was feeling 'Bandz a Make Her Dance,' throw a little bit of Juicy J in there."
  • The song features the American rapper Wale, but Kingston admitted that he originally tried to get Juicy J on the cut. "I'm not sure [if Juicy has heard the song] but Juicy J is also a friend of mine and I was originally going to put him on the song, but the timing [didn't work]. So Wale's my big bro so... but Juicy J, I love Juicy. He's amazing."

    Kingston continued, "Wale's also my friend. He's Nigerian. He's been there. I knew him for like a year and a half. He's cool. Anytime I hit him up, he hit me right back. So I figured he would sound good. There's not too much people that sounds good on a record like that. I figure his voice would add something to it."
