Banga Banga

Album: single release only (2013)
  • This song shows a more mature side to Austin than his previous releases. He told Billboard magazine that it is "not as poppy" as his previous singles. "I like different styles of music," he added, "so I wanted to put something a little feisty out there. It's a little different, a little more mature."
  • Austin penned the song with producer/songwriter Sean Garrett, who is best known as the co-creator of such hits as Usher's "Yeah!," and Chris Brown's "Run It!."
  • Austin explained the song title to MTV News: "Me and Sean named it that because we're talking about this girl and how perfect she is and how everything she does is just amazing," he explained. "It's kind of a more mature title, so I think it fits for my age and my demographic."
