Michael Henderson is mainly known for smooth R&B of the style later known as 'quiet storm'; this song was his only club dance track, charting at #4 on the Soul Singles chart. Another song from the album was "Prove It" which charted at number 27.
The song contains innuendos in the form of American football references. It also has references to marijuana ("The referee must have been smokin a joint"). Sounds from the handheld game Mattel Electronic Football were used in the introduction and background of the song.
