Hicks told the Birmingham News about this song with a bossa nova groove: "I had been trying my hand at Latin music a bit, quietly to myself. I decided to go that way with this song, because the title is so strong and the idea behind the story is so strong. We have (bassist) Abe Laboriel Sr. and (drummer) Abe Laboriel Jr. playing on it. These are legendary Latin musicians, a father-and-son duo. I think that makes it pretty authentic."
Hicks penned this with by producer Simon Climie and Dennis Morgan. The latter duo also wrote the album's lead single, "What's Right is Right."
