Songfacts®:

  • This is the third single from the British grime and R&B MC Chipmunk's second album, Transition. The song is the follow-up to his Chris Brown featuring hit "Champion." Chipmunk persuaded another American star to contribute to this track, the R&B singer-songwriter Keri Hilson. The London-born rapper told TaleTela that he is able to get hold of major artists from across the Atlantic as, "the one thing I would say with the American artists is that good music speaks volumes."
    He added: "When Keri heard (Transition track) 'White Lies', which now has Diddy Dirty Money on it, she loved it so much she was like 'hey man' and she remembered me from the MOBOs and she was there that time when I shut it down and then when she heard the other song that she's on now, she was like 'Oh my god, I wanna be on this one!'"
