In a 2013 interview with, Kelly spoke about the track’s sequel and how it was the first Destiny’s Child song she heard play on the radio.

“We were like, ‘Oh my God, Oh my God!’” she said. “We started running around the courtyard at Solange’s school and she hops out of the school and is like, ‘Why are y’all embarrassing me?’” Once they explained what was happening, Solange started running around the courtyard, too. “It was beautiful moment,” Rowland said. “We were just really happy.”
