Songfacts®:

  • This feel-good song is about sharing a relationship with the world. Ciara told Fuse why she chose to record this Rock City penned tune: "The way that the song just makes you feel - sonically, it just feels so good," the songstress explained. "You know what you're talking about, you can kind of be in a little fantasy world when you're thinking about a person or that feeling. It's just one of those songs - I think every album should have songs like that - where it is feel-good, it is fun. It may not be the deepest topic, but it just really feels good and sings to you."
  • "Kiss and Tell" is a term used when someone tells the media about their sexual exploits with a celebrity. Other artists that have recorded songs with the same or similar title include Bryan Ferry, Kesha and La Roux.
