  • Lyrics
  • This is the fourth single from London based drum and bass production duo Chase & Status' second album, No More Idols. The song features the vocals of Nottingham-born soul musician Liam Bailey, who was discovered and signed by Amy Winehouse on her record label Lioness Records. Bailey toured with Chase & Status on their late 2010 UK tour, where he joined them during the performances of this song.
  • Will "Status" Kennard told Contactmusic.com about the duo's hook up with Bailey: "Liam was an absolute pleasure to work with. He is one of the most charismatic people we've met. It was a real honour and we were very lucky that we heard about him from the Head of Universal who had just signed him. We watched an interview with him and we thought he was cool. At the time, we were struggling with the track and we had tried hundreds of artists; none of which was giving us a certain angle or edge. Liam sent us a demo, which had a dubby vibe to it, and we loved it. He's just a creative guy and a genius. He has a bright future ahead."
