Songfacts®:

  • This Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins (Beyonce, Michael Jackson) produced song is a bonus track on Britney Spears' seventh album, Femme Fatale. It's the rockiest number on the record and even features blink-182 stickman Travis Barker manning the drumkit. Jerkins told Showbiz Tonight: "I brought in Travis Barker, and it's got this rock feel, which is out of the box, out of my norm. I think it's out of her [Spears'] norm as well. We had a great time making this record."
