  • Lyrics
  • This is the eleventh single released by Scottish dance producer and recording artist Calvin Harris and the second from his third studio album. The song finds Harris himself providing the vocals, despite previously saying he'd given up singing on his own material. It was given its world premiere on Pete Tong's Radio 1 on July 8, 2011 and released as a digital download on August 21, 2011.
  • Nero, Benny Benassi and Dillan Francis all contribute remixes of the track.
  • The music video was directed by Vincent Haycock, who also shot the video for "Bounce." It sees Harris looking over a small American town, watching various characters dancing to his song.
  • This was one of the few hit songs of the time in the Dance genre that has just one credited songwriter. While most other hit tracks with this sound were collaborations, Harris is the only writer on this one.

  • Camille from Toronto, OhThis is the tune Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy danced the tango to on the 2014 season of Dancing With The Stars. I don't remember ever hearing the song before this show, yet it sounds like something I've always been familiar with, if that makes sense. This dance was the game-changer for Meryl & Maks, and put them on the path to claim the mirror ball trophy. During their practice session for this dance, Maks admits he's terrified and Meryl tells him to hold her hand. No one had ever seen a celebrity draw out the softer side of Maks. I loved everything about it. Meryl's costuming, hair and make-up were perfection, Maks looks super sharp and sizzling in all black. Ooo, and that chemistry. The dance is one of the best ever on the show. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o_gAnpYncZg
