Songfacts®:

  • The song tells the story of a neighboring boy and girl. Her parents attempt to discover the nature of their relationship and then try to discourage it.
  • The British tabloids claimed Craig David was the youngest ever British male solo artist to have a #1 until Gareth Gates in 2002 but they were incorrect. Craig Douglas was 10 months younger when he topped the charts in 1959 with "Only Sixteen." However, Craig David is still the youngest to write and sing a #1.
  • This won the 2000 Music Of Black Origin (MOBO) Award for Best Single.
  • In Britain in 2000, two-step was a popular style of music in the clubs. However, in America it was virtually unknown. Craig David comments on this in 1000 UK #1 Hits by Jon Kutner and Spencer Leigh, "It was interpreted there (USA) as a leftfield R&B track because it kicks into the two-step thing on the chorus and people don't know what two-step is. Two step is a country dance. It's a hybrid of dance music, house music and R&B."
