This was Boyzone's first hit single in the UK after almost nine years. Despite reaching the giddy heights of #5, this was their lowest charting single to date. The Irish boyband's 16 previous chart singles had all peaked at least at #4.
Boyzone's Ronan Keating wrote this together with Jarrad Rogers (Delta Goodrem, Bryn Christopher) and Nick Atkinson, who was previously the lead singer in the British rock band Rooster.
Kacey Musgraves originally offered "Follow Your Arrow" to her friend Katy Perry. However, Perry thought Musgraves should record the song herself as it seemed, "like something that you would totally say."
"Crank That (Soulja Boy)" was the most successful digital track of 2007 in the US with 2,909,000 downloads. On January 6, 2008 it became the first song ever to sell 3 million digital copies in the States.
