Janet sings this as a duet with rapper Nelly. The song was produced by Jermaine Dupri, who said, "It's really just a record about when you need a friend, somebody you need to talk to, just call on a person. It's a friend record. The way Nelly and Janet are talking is more girlfriend/boyfriend, but it really goes out to friends."

After the infamous "wardrobe malfunction" at the 2004 Super Bowl when Justin Timberlake exposed Jackson's breast during a performance, Jackson caught most of the heat. MTV co-produced the half-time event and was forced to pay a fine, but it was Jackson who would pay the price. Fans were in an uproar when MTV blacklisted the singer and refused to play her videos, including this one.
