Songfacts®:

  • Singer-songwriter Charlie Brown worked his apprenticeship in the music business co-penning songs for the likes of The Script, Jay Sean and Wiley. After signing to AATW in July 2012, Brown started working on his debut album. He told Digital Spy that solo stardom was always his main goal. "Every time I did a writing session with someone I'd keep a couple of songs back that I knew would be good for me," he said. "It kept nagging me at the back of my mind. That said, I've seen it not happen for a lot of people, so I feel like I've been realistic and have tried as hard as I can. The rest is up to the universe to decide!"
  • This is Brown's debut single, which he originally penned in 2010 after firing his then manager. "I was looking for a tune on my iPod that I could put on to inspire me and lift my mood," he said, "but there wasn't one." So Brown decided to write his own uplifting track.
