  • This is the lead single from the Filipina Pop and R&B singer Charice's self-titled debut album. It features R&B/pop singer Iyaz.
  • Charice's real name is Charmaine Pempengco, and she first achieved fame outside Asia when Oprah Winfrey dubbed her, "The most talented girl in the world." Charice subsequently became the first Asian artist in history to land in the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 album chart. Crossing over to television acting, she took up a role as a recurring character named Sunshine Corazon in the hit TV series Glee.
  • The song was produced by Twin, who are a Swedish record production and songwriting team, consisting of Niclas Molinder and Joacim Persson. The duo also co-wrote the track along with David Jassy, Johan Alkenäs, Drew Scott and R&B singer Lyrica Anderson.
  • The song was an international hit for Charice hitting #1 on the Japanese Hot 100 and also reaching the summit of the Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs chart.
  • The song's music video was shot at the Orpheum Theatre, in downtown Los Angeles on March 8, 2010. It shows Charice performing in front of a huge empty theater as Iyaz, who is seated in the audience, records her performance using his flip camera.
