Songwriting & Production
Jennifer and her fellow writer Cory Rooney (who she works closely with) came up with the song during early studio recording sessions for J.Lo.
According to Jennifer, it took "forever" to develop and stated:
"I couldn't write it, Cory couldn't write it. We had other people try to write it. No one could write this damn song."
Eventually, multiple people were brought in to contribute to the song's lyrics, including Manny Benito, Neal Creque, Jose Sanchez, Frank Rodriguez and Guillermo Edghill, Jr.
While Jennifer was in Europe promoting The Cell, Rooney called her and told her he had finished writing the song which he described as "sexy."
Jennifer "loved it," although she slightly changed the chorus.
