Songfacts®:

  • Dappy takes aim at the likes of Simon Cowell and X Factor winners Alexandra Burke and Joe McElderry on this sweary freestyle track, which is a follow up to "Tarzan," a song he dropped in August 2011. The mocking tune kicked off a family squabble on Twitter, as Dappy's cousin, Tulisa, was not impressed by her N-Dubz colleague lashing out at her X Factor boss Cowell. "Just puttin it out there..dont involve me in dappy's latest hype, I don't condone it in anyway. N its a shame I'm not around 2 control him (sic)," she tweeted provoking a series of exchanges between the pair.
  • The song's music video sees a person wearing an Alexandra Burke mask being strangled by a man clad in a Cowell mask. Dappy and Tulisa's bandmate Fazer makes a cameo appearance in the clip.
  • Dappy was forced to apologise after the song's music video originally featured the message "Free Leo Chindamo" in the opening credits, a reference to the teenage gang member convicted of killing head teacher Philip Lawrence. Chindamo was jailed again in 2011 after breaching the terms of his license by meeting a gang member, breaking a curfew and failing a breath test. Dappy explained that he wasn't aware of Chindamo's past and he knew his brother when he was young. The N-Dubz star promised to hand over the royalty payments from the track to anti-crime charity Nacro.
