Covers[edit]

Years later, the song would be covered by Chanté Moore and her then-husband, Kenny Lattimore. Large portions of the song would be interpolated in the 2000 "Make It Last Remix" of Mariah Carey's "Thank God I Found You". It was also covered in Hip-Hop as well with the song "Makin' Cash Forever" by Houston, Texas hip-hop group Botany Boyz and "Collect Call" by T.I. on his album Paper Trail. In the fall of 2011, the song was sampled in the remix of the Jacob Latimore song "Like 'Em All" featuring rapper Issa Thompson.
