The song was thought of by Sermon after buying a copy of Gaye's Midnight Love and the Sexual Healing Sessions album, which overlook some of the original album's earlier mixes. After listening to an outtake of Gaye's 1982 album track, "Turn On Some Music" (titled "I've Got My Music" in its initial version), Sermon decided to mix the vocals (done in a cappella) and add it into his own song. The result was similar to Natalie Cole's interpolation of her father, jazz great Nat "King" Cole's hit, "Unforgettable" revisioned as a duet. The hip hop and soul duet featuring the two veteran performers was released as the leading song of the soundtrack to the Martin Lawrence & Danny DeVito comedy, "What's the Worst That Could Happen?" The song became a runaway success rising to #2 on Billboard's R&B chart and was #1 on the rap charts. It also registered at #21 pop giving Sermon his highest-charted single on the pop charts as a solo artist and giving Gaye his first posthumous hit in 10 years following 1991's R&B-charted single, "My Last Chance" also bringing Gaye his 41st top 40 pop hit. There is also a version that's played on Adult R&B stations that removes Erick Sermon's rap verses. The song was featured in the 2011 Matthew McConaughey film The Lincoln Lawyer.
Coolness is an admired aesthetic of attitude, behavior, comportment, appearance and style, influenced by and a product of the Zeitgeist. Because of the varied and changing connotations of cool, as well as its subjective nature, the word has no single meaning. It has associations of composure and self-control (cf. the OED definition) and often is used as an expression of admiration or approval. Although commonly regarded as slang, it is widely used among disparate social groups, and has endured in usage for generations.
There is no single concept of cool. One of the essential characteristics of cool is its mutability—what is considered cool changes over time and varies among cultures and generations.
One consistent aspect however, is that cool is wildly seen as positive and desirable.
Although there is no single concept of cool, its definitions fall into a few broad categories.
WCIB (101.9 FM), known as "Cool 102", is a classic hitsradio station licensed to Falmouth, Massachusetts, playing music from the 1960s through the 1980s. It is owned by iHeartMedia, Inc.. Joe Rossetti and John Taylor are the morning show host talents. Matt Pitta provides news from sister station WXTK. Tracy Lynn is the midday personality. Brad Martin is the PM drive host, as well as the group's Production Director. Kevin Matthews is WCIB's Vice President/Operations Director and Allison Makkay Davis is its Senior Vice President/Market Manager.
The WCIB call letters stand for Cape and Islands Broadcasting, the original company that signed the station on in August 1970.
For several years, WCIB programmed a Top-40 format. But by late 1974, after losing the top-40 battle to WCOD-FM, the station switched to an "Adult Gold" format. The station was later home to an Adult Contemporary format known as "Lite 102 WCIB", owned by Boston radio personality Larry Justice. After a short stint as "Country Thunder 101", the station was rebranded by its new owner, Al Makkay, as Cool 102, which quickly established itself as the market's ratings leader. Makkay Broadcasting sold WCIB, with its sister stations WRZE and WCOD-FM, to Qantum Communications in 2003 for $32M.
