The song was originally recorded by Brandy alone, and appears on her debut album as a solo performance.

Almost a year after the album’s release, the song was re-recorded as a duet with Wanya while Boyz II Men and Brandy were touring together. It was labelled the ‘Soulpower Mix’ and released as the final single from her debut album.
