Songfacts®:

  • This piano-powered break-up ballad is the fourth single from Chipmunk's debut album, I Am Chipmunk. The grime artist's real name is Jaahmal Fyffe and a friend who lived on his North London estate gave him the nickname Chipmunk after the shape of his front teeth.
  • The song features the vocals of Urban Development Vocal Collective's Dayo Olatunji aka Ms D.
  • This is the first song Chipmunk has done that has targeted his female following. He recorded it, "to give something back for all the love they've given me," he explained with a grin to The Daily Mirror.
  • The video sees Chipmunk stranded in a ring of fire and comforting his love interest who is played by the British actress Red Madrell (best known for playing Alisa in the movies Kidulthood and Adulthood). The director Vertex (N-Dubz, The Noisettes) said on Promo News: "Chipmunk was keen to have a video with fire and wanted to keep it as real as possible, so we took him to stage A at Shepperton and filmed him in a real ring of fire."
  • The song gave Chipmunk his first UK #1 hit. It reached peak position on October 11, 2009, beating The Saturdays in a two-way battle for the top of the charts. Co-incidentally, one line of "Oopsy Daisy" reads "now I feel like Saturdays are weaker."
