The song peaked at number 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 1 on the Hot Rap Tracks chart. Classic Buck$ aka Buck and Maurice "Parlae" Gleaton produced the recording. The music video shows them snap dancing. The song is considered to be the turning point in Dem Franchize Boyz's career as it brought them into mainstream hip hop scene and also wide spread the subgenre of snap music during the mid-2000s. Vocals and lyrics from the bridge of the song were sampled in the Twenty One Pilots song "Holding on to You", "Do it to it" by R&B girl group Cherish, "Everytime Tha Beat Drop" by R&B singer Monica, as well as rapper Juice WRLD's "Lean wit Me".
