Cole started work on her second album shortly after the release of her debut The Way It Is. About the album, Cole says, "This album is more about you, inside, and how you need to get yourself together, rather than pointing at somebody else and saying, 'You don't treat me right, you don't do this.' I'm truly lovin it, I listen to it myself. The last album, I didn't really listen to until I went on tour. [Because] when you listen to your own experience, it's like, I don't wanna hear it anymore. I do write from my personal experiences, but I think it's very important to young women."[1]

Guests include Missy Elliott, Lil Kim, Too $hort, Amina, Anthony Hamilton, Young Dro, T.I., Chink Santana & Piper. The US version has Cole's guest appearance on the song 'Last Night' by Diddy while the UK version has that, along with Boyfriend/Girlfriend by C-Side & (When You Gonna) Give It Up To Me by Sean Paul and the International Version contains both tracks.
