Songfacts®:

  • This is the third official single from Brazilian born, British rap vocalist Aggro Santos and his first release after appearing on ITV's reality show I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!. (He came in sixth). Santos told Digital Spy: "Every time I've come out with a single, it's been a completely different sound. This time it's more pop, bubbly and commercial than my last track, 'Saint or Sinner,' because that's the direction I felt I should go in before the album drops. I've just come out of a major TV show watched by millions, so it made sense to go with something a bit more accessible."
  • The song features guest vocals from Girls Aloud member, Kimberley Walsh. It was Walsh's first single away from her band and Santos told Digital Spy how he hooked up with the singer: "I actually met Kimberley through my label boss, Gary Barlow, as they did the Kilimanjaro hike together. I said I'd always been a fan of Girls Aloud, and Kim was always my favourite-looking member, so we made it happen!"
  • The music video was directed by the Lennox Brothers and features Santos adopting a variety of different looks to try to win the affections of Walsh during speed dating. He told Digital Spy: "I can't tell you how much I enjoyed shooting that video. I've been so lucky this year - first Kimberly Wyatt then Kimberley Walsh, both The KWs!"
