  • The single version featuring Keyshia Cole was different to The Trinity album version, which was just Sean Paul.
  • The version with Cole also featured on the soundtrack for the 2006 movie Step Up.
  • Sean Paul admitted to Heeb Magazine that this song, "is about, yeah, give me some pussy." He added: "But it's about saying it with tact. It's not wilin' out. It can play on the radio. I'm thinking about my son when I am writing this too, you know."
  • This was Sean Paul's sixth Top Ten hot on the Hot 100. The dancehall star is the most successful Jamaican artist of all time on the US charts.
