"I always allow a woman to do her thing in my music videos. You can't really win in a situation like that, trying to freak her out. Let her have it! She wants to get it, come get it. When you're in the club, let her do her thing. That's what the song is about. Shorty is getting down low, telling me to come get it. I'm like 'Yeah, I'm with it.'' - Usher
"I knew that Usher was almost finished with his album. L.A. Reid called me and said, 'We need a first single.' We spoke a little bit about it, and I went to the studio. Since all the other songs on the album were very hot and R&B-ish, I wanted to give him something out-of-the-box that was more creative and dynamic. So we went in and cut a demo and took it to L.A., and we sat and talked about it for quite a while. He thought it was very interesting, but he asked me a lot of questions in reference to how it worked for Usher and said he wanted a change or two. So I went in, and the rest is history - and the beginning of this beautiful run." - Sean Garrett (songwriter)
"The song is about when I realize, 'You and my girl used to be the best of homies and I'm about to go home with you?'. Damn, what's up with that?" - Usher
