Songfacts®:

  • X Factor finalist Cher Lloyd hooked up with the East London Grime artist, Ghetts, for this heavy club track. The rapper is a curious choice as he is known for his violent lyrics and criticism of Grime artists dominating the charts with watered down material. A number of music writers expressed surprise that Simon Cowell's label would want to be associated with such a controversial figure. However, Cher is said to be a big fan of the hardcore MC and personally requested him for the cut. The song also features upcoming grime artists Mic Righteous and Dot Rotten.
