Songfacts®:

  • This bouncy track from T Pain's Stoicville: The Phoenix album is another of the Florida native's stripper pole anthems. He told Artist Direct: "You know I'm the strip club king. It just goes like that, man. Basically, I'm just making another one. This is regular s--t for me. I'm just going in!"
  • This features production from DJ Mustard (Jeezy's "R.I.P.," B.O.B.'s "Headband") The song started with the Californian producer's instrumentation. "I was listening to the beat for about three days," recalled T-Pain. "Once I forced myself to do it, then I had it. It wasn't really a hard thing to do. I was just like, 'Alright, I guess I'll do this one! Here we go!'"
  • The song features B.o.B, whom T-Pain has known since before he broke through with "Nothin' On You." T-Pain told Artist Direct: "At the time, it wasn't the right songs or the right situation. Now, that I had something good so it was only right. I don't make people conform to what I'm doing when I got to get somebody. When you get T-Pain, you don't really want to tell T-Pain what to do. If you got in mind what you want T-Pain to do, you could've done it yourself. That's where B.o.B came from, and he enjoys strip clubs as much as I do. It was only right to get him."
