Boys

Album: 3 Words – The B-Sides EP (2009)
  • songfacts ®
  • The B-side to Cheryl Cole's duet with will.i.am "3 Words," this song finds her discussing why romantically open girls get attracted to bad boys.
  • This was one of the first songs written by Emeli Sandé' after she linked up with her writing partner Naughty Boy. She recalled to The Sun in 2016:

    "He (Naughty Boy) rang just to say Cheryl wants to take this song. So we were really excited and it was just the fact that someone famous had done our song. I hadn't met her - I've never met her actually."
