Charted: 5

Songfacts®:

  • This urban, dance-heavy club track is the debut single from Brazilian-born UK rap artist Aggro Santos. The song was co-written and produced by the Swedish production team Andreas "Quiz" Romdhane and Josef Larossi (Quiz & Larossi) and features guest vocals from former Pussycat Dolls member, Kimberly Wyatt.
  • Santos told BiggerThanBeyonce.com: "I was writing in Sweden and really loved the beat so we started vibing on it and 'Candy' was the outcome. It wasn't forced or nothing, it just worked out really nice."
  • Kimberly Wyatt told Digital Spy how their collaboration came about: "I was working in a studio here in London with [producers] Red Rhythm, and they told me about Aggro and his underground following, so I did some research on him and his music and really dug his vibe, and just thought, 'Why not?' I met with Aggro for a writing session and we got along really well. Then a few days later he played me 'Candy' and I thought it sounded like a smash, so when he asked if I'd lay down some vocals for it, of course I said yes."
