Songfacts®:

  • This hot club jam features Will.i.am rapping in a thick, Caribbean patois. The Black Eyed Peas songwriter told Spin magazine that he is proud enough of the song that he'd even play it for Jay-Z. "I would go to Jay's studio and play this be like 'Boom! Check it out!,' said Will. "Then I go dirty Caribbean on him on the last verse."
  • This is one of three tracks on The Beginning to be produced by Damien "DJ Ammo" LeRoy, the other two being the lead single "The Time (The Dirty Bit)" and "Do It Like This." The Los Angeles-based music producer regularly DJs all over the world and has played parties for Will.i.am, and Fergie as well as Outkast. He also produced Kelis' single "4th of July (Fireworks)," which was released on Will's label via Interscope.
