"My Lovin'" contains a sample of the guitar riff from the James Brown song "The Payback". The guitar sample is looped throughout the entire song and forms the basis of the melody. The song features Maxine Jones and Dawn Robinson on lead vocals. In a 1992 article, En Vogue mentioned this was one of the last songs they recorded for Funky Divas, which resulted in it being released as a single so close to the album's release date.

It debuted on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 singles chart at #71, the week of March 21, 1992, and jumped to #47 by the following week. The single glided into the top tier, reaching its peak of #2 by the week of May 16, 1992, where it remained for three consecutive weeks. "My Lovin'" was one of several top contenders during the summer of 1992 that was held out of the top spot by Kris Kross (#1 for 8 weeks with "Jump").
