Trivia[edit]

  • Peter Vives sings on the track and is also in the music video. Until the release of The Cheetah Girls 2 he was never credited. However he is simply listed as "Angel" on the inside booklet of The Cheetah Girls 2.
  • This was the follow-up single to The Party's Just Begun, and was the most successful single yet, and yet was quickly followed up by Step Up.
  • While performing at The Disney Channel Games, they shortened the song. The song opened with their opening lines of the song excluding Raven's, and before the second chorus they added a brief dance mix. The rest of the song was intact.
