  • Conor Maynard opens his debut album, Contrast, with this cut, in which he sings of a girl who is messing him "up so good" and tearing his heart apart, "like an animal." Conor wrote the song with The Invisible Men. The London-based songwriting and production trio also collaborated with Conor on his first two singles, "Can't Say No" and "Vegas Girl."
  • Maynard teamed up with rapper Wiley for a reworked version of the track, which was released as the fourth single from Contrast on January 21, 2013.
