"I Need You Tonight" was the second single released from Junior M.A.F.I.A.'s debut album, Conspiracy. The album version featured Faith Evans singing the chorus, while the single version had Aaliyah singing instead. The track was produced by DJ Clark Kent, who sampled the Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam song "I Wonder If I Take You Home" and the Patrice Rushen song "Remind Me". Though "I Need You Tonight" did not find the success of the album's other two singles, it did become a minor hit on three different Billboard charts.

The music video featured the members and Aaliyah holding a pool party at Kim's house while she flies to Colombia to negotiate a deal with a drug lord.
