Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Songz promising a prospective lover that he's going to love her down all night. The track features Nicki Minaj. "She talking crazy. She killed it. I'm proud of Nicki," he said of their collaboration during a podcast on Billboard's The Juice. "I'm so proud of her, just to see her evolve into what she is now. She's so smart and intelligent to have masterminded the whole Nicki Minaj rise to where she is... to have become a pop star."
  • Songz and Minaj previously collaborated on "Bottoms Up," a hit single from the singer's Passion, Pain & Pleasure album.
  • The song interpolates a melody from Notorious B.I.G. and R. Kelly's 1997 track "F--k You Tonight."
  • The song's music video was directed by Jason Zada (Linkin Park's "Lost In The Echo"). Nicki Minaj plays the dominant figure in the clip. "She's basically controlling my dreams," Songz explained to MTV News. "And each portion of what you see is what it is she wants to happen."

    The video also includes an interactive feature. Zada explained to MTV News: "This idea of all your fantasy choices available to you at any point in time, it was kind of this really great way of sort of personifying all these fantasies that we all have floating around in our heads."
