Songfacts®:

  • This delicate ballad featuring Songz's falsetto finds him waxing lyrical about his accomplishments whilst wishing he could lift his community with him on "top of the world." "Today, it's kind of difficult to make a conscious record and still be successful, however brash that sounds," he told Billboard magazine. "As much as is going on in the world, people aren't really checking for that real conscious record. They want to dance, they want to hear bragging, all that stuff. With that song, it was about telling people I worked hard for what I have-and I have a lot. I'm very fortunate. But by that same token, I will give back to as many people as I can."
  • The song's music video was filmed in Songz's hometown of Petersburg, Virginia, and finds him joining in various activities with the locals such as shooting hoops and joining in at a house party.
