The single features fellow American singer-songwriter Usher and American rapper Ludacris, who had collaborated with Lil Jon on Usher's hit single "Yeah!" earlier that year. The single peaked at number three on the Billboard Hot 100. The B-Side "Real N***a Roll Call" features westcoast rapper Ice Cube, and was released as the second single in September 2004.
