Composition


The song is in the key of F# major. Akon mentions Jamaican Olympic Athlete Usain Bolt in his verse because the sprinter mentions that he listens to Akon's music. Fellow Olympian Michael Phelps is referenced in Young Jeezy's verse.

Music video


A music video for the track was filmed in September 2008. Akon said that it would be a James Bond kind of video. The video features Lil Wayne and Young Jeezy, and was directed by Gil Green. DJ Khaled and T-Pain are featured as a cameo. Konvict Muzik artists Kardinal Offishall, Billy Blue, Tami Chynn, Bu Thiam, and Cash Money artist Lil Chuckee were also featured in a cameo.[1] The video was released on October 30, 2008.[2] Clothing brand Coogi underwrote the entire $1-million production cost for the video.[3] The music video begins with Akon entering a yacht off a helicopter, giving the female dealer (Tami Chynn) a diamond in exchange for money. As Akon and another woman leave, the dealer discovers the jewelry gone, and asks her assistants to get them. Akon and the woman escape by boat and car. As Akon parked the car, he gave the money to the girl in exchange for the diamond. The girl later discovers that the money is fake.
