This is the debut single recorded by Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman's son, Connor Cruise. The radio-friendly EDM tune was co-written and produced by Connor himself. "I was trying to make an upbeat commercial dance music track that makes you feel good and is more of an anthem," he told Billboard magazine.
The song features vocals by singer Mason Musso, formerly of pop-dance band Metro Station. "When I made the track I had Mason's voice in mind the whole time," Cruise told Billboard magazine. "When it came time to put a vocal on it, having him was perfect."
This was co-penned by frequent Black Eyed Peas collaborator, DJ Poet. "I have always loved working with DJ Poet," Cruise told Billboard. "Ever since I started producing he has really helped to mentor and guide me through the whole world of music."
Bruce Springsteen wrote "Blinded By The Light," which was a #1 hit for Manfred Mann's Earth Band. The "Madman Drummers" line is a reference to Springsteen's first E-Street drummer, Vinnie "Mad dog" Lopez.
