  • French DJ David Guetta's fifth studio collection, Nothing But The Beat, is a double album. The first disc features collaborations with artists from the R&B, Hip-Hop and Pop worlds, whilst the second disc is made up of purely electronic instrumental tracks. This tune, featuring Dutch music producer and DJ Afrojack, is from the second disc and was released digitally on August 15, 2011 as the second of three promotional singles.
  • Guetta told MTV News that he hoped those fans who buy the record for the voice-oriented album will also listen to the less commercial electronic disc. "I feel that I am very blessed that my music has been crossing over but at the same time, my original fans, they're still the most important ones," he insisted. "And I'm a DJ first, so my music is very electronic even though I make songs now and they're being played on the radio. But the fact that I come from a very instrumental culture, it's still in me. So I made this electronic album for my original fans, for everybody that came to Electric Daisy Carnival in Vegas, that are raving and partying every weekend. But also, I made this electronic album because I want the people that know me for what they heard on the radio and that are buying my album for the big songs, I also want them to discover where I'm coming from and the other side of me."
  • Guetta devotes all his energies to dance music. He explained to Artist Direct: "That's why the album's called Nothing But The Beat, because that's my life. I play records when I DJ almost every night. I do about 150 gigs a year. The rest of the time, I just make beats and work on music. I don't really have time for anything else. I have a family. I already don't have enough time for them."
  • Guetta released a different edition of Nothing But The Beat for the US market. The American version is a single CD comprising the tracks included on Disc 1 of the international edition plus "Lunar" from Disc 2.
  • The song samples "Don't You Want My Love," a 1989 track by the New Jersey female R&B/house vocal trio Jomanda.
