  • Cazzettte are a Swedish EDM duo comprising Alexander Björklund and Sebastian Furrer. They first heated up as a result of their remixes for the likes of David Guetta and Avicii, before this song became their first Billboard chart entry when it debuted on Dance/Mix Show Airplay.
  • The duo made history on November 12, 2012 when they released their debut EP Eject via Spotify, marking the first-ever debut exclusively on the streaming site.
  • The phrase 'Beam me up' meaning 'Get me out of this' originated on US campuses in the 1960s. The phrase quotes Captain's Kirk's request to the chief engineer, "Beam me up, Scotty" in Star Trek, to activate a beam that can return him from a planet to the starship Enterprise. According to Brewer's Dictionary of Modern Phrase and Fable, he never actually says this, his nearest equivalent words being "Beam us up, Mr Scott."
