Producer: Sean Garrett, Ron Fair, Polow da Don
Sean Garrett: "'Buttons' was really big. Jimmy Iovine is really dope and he's another person who just pushes me to be creative and the more creative I am, the more he likes it. "Buttons" came about in a very short time. I wrote it in a very short time. My man Polow Da Don did the beat.
"I really dug the beat. A lot of times, my songs come from a conversation I had with someone. It could just be a phrase used. Everyone knows Nicole is very sexy so the concept of loosening up her buttons,—every guy would want that and women wouldn't have a problem with guys loosening up their buttons."
