Songfacts®:

  • Good Luck Charlie and Lemonade Mouth actress Bridgit Mendler has been writing songs since she was six years old and her credits as a songwriter include "This Is My Paradise," which she wrote and performed for the 2010 movie Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2. The following year, she co-wrote and sang the Disney's Friends for Change Games anthem, "We Can Change the World". This is the first song from Mendler's debut album, Hello My Name Is, which she penned with Emanuel "Eman" Kiriakou (Selena Gomez & The Scene's
    "Who Says") and Evan "Kidd" Bogart (Jason DeRulo's "It Girl").
  • Bridgit explained the song's meaning in an interview with Kidzworld: "It's a fun song about a girl who is feeling like she has been the wallflower her whole life and she wants to go out there and take charge. It has the romantic element of her going for the guy rather than waiting for the world to come to her."
  • The song features an interpolation of Fugees' 1996 UK #1 hit, "Ready Or Not."
