Songfacts®:

  • Austin's lead single from his The Secret album features rapper Pitbull, and received its radio debut during Elvis Duran's January 24, 2013 morning show.
  • Austin performed the song live for the first time at Pepsi's #PEPCITY Super Bowl XLVIII kick-off party in New York City on January 29, 2013 and then two days later on Good Morning America.
  • The song featured in an Aquafina FlavorSplash commercial starring Austin that premiered during the Grammy Awards telecast on January 26, 2014.
  • The chorus samples Chicago house music artist Lidell Townsell's 1992 single "Nu Nu," which reached #26 on the Hot 100.
  • The song's music video finds Austin and Pitbull moving through an enclosed room accompanied by some females. The clip is a homage to Jamiroquai's 1996 visual for "Virtual Insanity."

    "We kind of had that idea and were kind of like, man, we could take a little spin-off of that and make it our own kind of version," Austin told Fuse TV. "We basically built a room and the room kept moving around. I ran into the wall a couple of times."
