In addition to Demi’s sassy, flirty self, the song also features Timbaland and Missy Elliott, who also produced/wrote the song for the pop princess. The track isn’t bubble gum pop. It’s a pure R&B party jam that would sound perfect on 90’s radio.
The track’s chorus is super infectious and fun. Demi tells her love interest, “Don’t make plans / Come home we’ll stay up all night long / I want you bad / Let’s keep the party going all night long.” Her vocals play well with Tim’s vocoded beat box that runs through the entire track. And, Demi’s sassy lyrics are only matched by Missy’s sassier rhyme, where she spits lines like “You talking how I like / You play daddy, I’ll play wife.”
While it’s certainly a step toward a more mature sound for the 19-year-old, she recently insisted to MTV News that her sound is still intended for her fans of all ages. “The song that Missy and I did together, Timbaland’s actually on it, too, and it’s fun,” she said. “It’s about staying up all night long and singing it to the boy that you like, and it’s flirty and fun and it’s not too grown-up, but it’s grown-up enough.”
