Background

The single was written by Chris Rene, his brother and sister Gabriel and Gina, X Factor vocal coach Claude Kelly and producer Charles "Chuck Harmony" Harmon, and recorded in early 2012. At the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards, Chris teased that the song would become his third single from the album. On September 13, 2012, Rene previewed a first listen of the single to his fans through his Facebook account. Rene says of the single: "this song is about basically a guy kind of being mischievous and not being truthful at the beginning, but what it really comes down to is he wants to be passionate about one girl and to have that love in his life. It's all about her. He's only rocking with her. I think a lot of people are going to feel it."

Critical reception

Michele Amabile Angermiller of The Hollywood Reporter took a positive liking to the song, saying that it "reveals a crisp, breezy sound that showcases Rene's honeyed vocals as well as his rapping skills and sweet romantic rhymes."

Live performances

Rene first performed the song live while embarking on his promotional tour. On August 12, 2012, Chris acoustically performed the televised debut of both "Trouble" and "Rockin With You" on VH1's Big Morning Buzz Live.
