Background

A remix of the song was featured on the deluxe edition of the group's fifth studio album, The E.N.D. The song samples the intro of "Family Affair" by Sly & the Family Stone, while the intro samples "Lord of the Golden Baboon" by Mandrill. The song's chorus is an interpolation of the chorus to Debbie Deb's "Lookout Weekend". This was the last single they released before Kim Hill left the group.
