Songfacts®:

  • A-Trak (real name: Alain Macklovitch) is best known for being one half of Duck Sauce, who had an international hit single in 2010 with "Barbra Streisand." The Montreal-based DJ and turntablist is also the founder of the Fool's Gold label. His older brother, David Macklovitch, is one-half of the Canadian electro-funk duo Chromeo.

    This trap anthem finds A-Trak joining forces with production duo Milo & Otis, their first collaboration following M&O's remix with Skrillex and Kill The Noise of the Duck Sauce single "NRG." The track features some chopped vocals from Rich Kidz.
  • The song entered the US Hot 100 following its airing in a commercial for Mountain Dew Kickstarter during the Super Bowl XLIX Pregame show. (Kickstarter is a blend of Mountain Dew, juice and coconut water.)
