Songfacts®:

  • This was the second single from American electronic music duo 3Oh!3's second studio album, Want.
  • A re-mixed radio version was recorded by 3OH!3 for the expanded edition of Want featuring Katy Perry. The I Kissed a Girl singer and 3OH!3 have shared the stage many times and the re-mix gave them the opportunity to collaborate together. Perry joked to MTV News about her contribution to the song: "I came in on the song after they had finished, and they said, 'Katy, just come in and do, like, 16 bars,' and I was like, 'Yeah, whatever. It's nothing,' And I just went in and blew in the studio like that."
  • The remixed version featured in the trailer to Touchstone Pictures' romantic comedy, When In Rome.
