It was Wilson's biggest hit of his singles that charted on both the Billboard Hot 100 and the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. It was his fifth and penultimate #1 R&B song. It was his second highest charting song on the pop charts, peaking at #5.[1] It was written by Wilson and good friend Alonzo Tucker, an original member of the famed 1950s Doo Wop group, The Midnighters.
