This is the second single from R&B singer-songwriter Terius "The-Dream" Nash's third album, Love King. The song features Nash's fellow Atlanta native, rapper T.I., and was produced by his frequent collaborator Christopher "Tricky" Stewart.
In this song, Nash is apologizing to his girl for a misdemeanor and is trying to demonstrate that he's sorry. "The song itself originated from just trying to find a great make-up gift," The-Dream explained to MTV News. "Some people like cards, some girls like yachts and whatnot. But this particular girl that I'm talking about just likes bags - that's her thing, and that's what this song is about. I know everybody is saying, 'Well, I don't got five stacks for a make-up bag.' Well, maybe that's not actually what your girl likes anyway. It may be something else. It's just about trying to find what they like. And if you got a real good girl she's not gonna let you spend $5,000 on a bag anyway."
"Big Love" is a showcase song for Lindsey Buckingham and the first single from Fleetwood Mac's 1987 album Tango In The Night, but he left the group soon after the album was released and the band didn't perform it live until he returned 10 years later.
