Songfacts®:

  • This piece of Auto-Tuned electro pop is the second single recorded by Barbados-based pop group Cover Drive. The band explained to Pyro magazine why they chose this as their follow up to "Lick Ya Down." "The song is about friends evolving into lovers," they said, "'Twilight' is the most band-defining song we have on our upcoming album. It made sense to go with a band-defining song after our set-up single, 'Lick Ya Down'."
  • Cover Drive penned this tune with Swedish production team Quiz & Larossi, whose other credits include "Up" for The Saturdays and "Candy" for Aggro Santos. Norwegian songwriter Ina Wroldsen, who has penned many of The Saturdays' hits, is the other credited songwriter.
  • The song debuted at #1 on the UK singles chart despite having nothing to do with vampires!
  • Cover Drive were the third Barbadian act to reach #1 on the UK singles chart following Rihanna and Rayvon, who was a featured artist on Shaggy's "Angel."
