What it really means is that you have to slow down

- Mariah Carey

Written by Mariah Carey, Johntá Austin, Jermaine Dupri, Damian Marley & Manuel Seal
Produced by Mariah Carey & Jermaine Dupri


3:33     Album Version featuring Damian Marley


  • "What it really means is that you have to slow down," Mariah said. "Because every time you're around this guy, you're going a little too fast, and he's the wrong type of guy for you to be with, but you don't know how to handle it." Mariah wrote the track during her second visit to Jermaine Dupri's Atlantic studio, with the aid of backup vocalist Crystal Johnson. "It was cool to kinda co-write that with JD and with Crystal, because, you know, it's coming from the woman's point of view and it also comes from JD's point of view," which Mariah felt made the track "really hot.”


2008 Released on the E=MC2 album.
