Despite what the song's title might imply, The-Dream is bluntly telling his lady that he's not interested in foreplay at all, but wants to get down to business. "I want it now," he sings. "I'm talking straight sex."
During a preview of the IV Play album, The-Dream explained that the "no frills" of its title track weaves throughout the album. He added that "instead of dancing the line of being mainstream and young" he's "just accepted that there's a mature audience" open to this new music.
