"Into You" is based on Tamia's 1998 single "So Into You", produced by Tim & Bob and samples the Commodores' song "Say Yeah", as it was originally sampled on the original Tamia song. While Ashanti provided vocals for the original version of the song, the commercial version (radio edit) sees a reworked version with Tamia as the featured artist for the single release. A version of the song with Ashanti's vocals appears on the Street Dreams album.

Music videoEdit

The music video for the single is 4 minutes and 20 seconds long and was originally supposed to have Ashanti in it, but because of scheduling conflicts, Fabolous and his record label were forced to go with Tamia for the video instead. The video was shot primarily on a beach, for a summer vibe to keep the single hot and make it a summer hit, even though the song itself was released in March. K. D. Aubert also makes a cameo in the video as his love interest.
