  • Lyrics
  • This is the third single from R&B singer songwriter Toni Braxton's sixth studio album, Pulse. The song was co-written by Lucas Secon and Makeba Riddick. Secon has worked with a diverse group of artists including Mos Def, Damian Marley, The Pussycat Dolls and Kylie Minogue. He told HitQuarters: "That was a track I had that Vincent Herbert - who signed [Lady] Gaga and who consults on Toni - actually heard, and said, That's Toni's single. It's kind of a mix of old school/new school, it's got an Evelyn 'Champagne' King sample in the verses, and then the chorus it's more like soulful rate. I tried to do something where I respected her roots but also introduced her to a new audience who don't know her - like my son."
  • Secon explained to HitQuarters how he wrote the song with Riddick: "I had sent her some lyrics and some concepts, and on that particular one she'd gone in and written the rest of it, along with the melodies, and cut it in New York. We then met in LA, cut the vocals with Toni, and then together tweaked it a little bit."
  • The song's music video was directed by filmmaker Bille Woodruff who has previously worked with Braxton on a number of her clips including those for "Un-Break My Heart" and "Yesterday."
