DJ Munro and DC Joseph produced this track, which is from British soul and R&B singer Beverley Knight's sixth studio album, 100%.
The song samples the Scottish band's Orange Juice's 1983 hit single "Rip it Up." Knight explained on her website that she has loved the song from childhood. She added: "I recently met Edwyn Collins, lead singer and composer of the band who went on to have huge success as a solo artist, and he loves what I have done with it! It is total guitar led funk with a wicked sense of humour in the lyric 'get yourself a life - and make it work!'"
Knight explained that this song is, "about people who focus their envy of your progress onto you and your life, instead of concentrating on their own journey."
For the single release of the song, a remix was created featuring British rapper Chipmunk performing over the original middle-eight section.
Carla Thomas became the first woman to achieve a Top 10 hit on the Hot 100 with a song she wrote herself when "Gee Whiz (Look At His Eyes)" reached the chart's top tier in 1961. Thomas was just 16-years-old when she penned it.
