Song information[edit]

The song was written by Beenie Man and produced by award-winning duo The Neptunes. It was released as a single on June 25, 2002 peaking in the top 20's and 30's in most countries. It spent 12 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 peaking at #28. It also peaked at #9 on the UK Singles Chart. [1] In 2004, Jackson expressed her regret for the duet, saying "If I had known that (he was associated with homophobia), I would not have worked with him. It's shocking to me. We're on the same label, so I should have known. But at the same time, I wish someone from the company would have told me, knowing how... I feel about the gay community."[2] The song appeared in the Japan-only radio promo sampler We Love Janet in 2006.

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Dave Meyers. Set on an island beach, it depicts different characters in their daily life with Jackson and Beenie Man on the beach enjoying the surroundings and different activities around them. Towards the end, Beenie Man pulls in a fourwheeler near Janet and begins to eye her with binoculars. The video ends with a party that was mentioned in the song. The video was filmed on Westward Beach in Malibu, California.
