Album: single release only (2015)
Charted: 34
  • Calvin Harris teams up on this club anthem with British grime artist Dizzee Rascal. The pair first worked together in 2008, when the Scottish electro artist Harris featured on the London MC's first UK #1 single "Dance Wiv Me". Harris also co-wrote and produced another Dizzee Rascal chart-topper the following year, "Holiday." Their most recent collaboration, prior to this tune, was "Here 2 China," a track from Harris' 18 Months album.
  • Apart from Dizzee Rascal, Calvin Harris tends to work with vocalists from the worlds of pop or R&B: Other rappers he has collaborated with include Tinie Tempah and Big Sean.
  • The song is credited to "Dizzee Rascal and Calvin Harris." Speaking on the Capital London Breakfast Show, Rascal explained the joint credit: "We opted for a collaboration," he said. "Straight, me and him. Which at this point where he is in his life, and career, is a blessing."

    The MC added: 'Dance Wiv Me' and 'Holiday' are the tracks we did together and we never recorded those in a studio together. So this is the first track where we have sat together in the studio."
