The song was the first single from Rabbitt's 1979 album Loveline, "Suspicions" reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles charts that August. "Suspicions" also continued Rabbitt's rise as a crossover artist; peaking at No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100, it was his highest peak on the pop chart to that time.

Rabbitt said that he wrote the song "in five minutes in the studio during a lunch break".
