  • Over hip-hop beats, this single finds Conor Maynard trying to avoid the advances of his ex-girlfriend. The singer-songwriter produced and co-penned the tune with Labrinth. The English dance/hip-hop singer and producer first gained notoriety for his collaborations with Tinie Tempah on his solo album Electronic Earth, which included the chart-topping collaboration with Emeli Sandé, "Beneath Your Beautiful."
  • The accompanying music video is a literal take on the lyrics as we see Conor attempting to evade the advances of his past flame, before she finally seduces him in their hotel room.
