How You Like Me Now

Album: Alexia Jordan (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • This Stargate produced track was co-written by August Rigo. The Canadian songwriter has accumulated a first-rate CV with writing credits for songs by Justin Bieber ("U Smile"), Iyaz ("Solo") and JLS ("Outta This World").
  • The song's empowering message is particularly meaningful to Alexis. She explained that this is, "mainly because a lot of people weren't very supportive, like my friends, so to get to where I am now still having people giving me negative feedback for something that I was very happy that I did."
