BackgroundEdit

The song has an '80s-styled beat. The song samples the drumbeat of Prince's "Erotic City", but slightly modified to increase the bass. During BET's Access Granted, Diddy brought up the fact that Keyshia re-recorded her parts multiple times, and the two had many artistic differences on the song. The recording of the song was featured on Keyshia Cole's reality show The Way It Is. On the album version of the song, Diddy is heard talking on the phone using a lot of explicit words at the end. The radio version of the song fades out before the phone dials, while the clean album version of the song still has this part only with the explicit words censored out.

CompositionEdit

"Last Night" is written in the key of E minor (recorded a half-step lower in E minor). The song moves at a tempo of 121 beats per minute, and the vocals in the song span from B3 to D5.[1]

Chart performanceEdit

"Last Night" was expected to be a huge hit.[citation needed] It in fact was hitting #10 on the Hot 100 becoming his second top 10 hit off "Press Play". The track however was a moderate hit worldwide. "Last Night" managed to go top 20 in ten different countries. In the UK "Last Night" only reached #14, becoming his first single from Press Play not to hit the top 10.
