Conception[edit]

The song was initially written by Ja Rule in a club, while he was watching some ladies dancing. In an interview with BET, Ja Rule said that it was too explicit to describe the process of writing the lyrics of the song. According to the rapper, he was performing sexual intercourse with a groupie when he thought of the chorus.[1]
