Cee-Lo Green explained to Mojo back in December of 2010 why he believed this song proved to be so popular: "It rang true to a lot of my peers and fellow artists.

Did you know Cee-Lo ang backup on this classic from TLC? Cee-Lo recalled to The Guardian newspaper March 22, 2008: "I was working at the same studio and of course I know the girls too, because we were on the same label, so they just asked me.

Cee-Lo explained the meaning of this song to MTV News: "This song, I think, just has a broader appeal, because it's just not talking about me, it's talking about us, he explained. "It's a song about the nightlife and just kinda being out and living for the weekend.
Cee-Lo told Entertainment Weekly that the lyrics about a gold-digging ex aren't strictly autobiographical. "I mean, it's based on something true… As far as me personally, it's not a current event. It's a figurative account. It's not completely fictitious, though."
