Songfacts®:

  • This party song is the opening track from American pop singer Demi Lovato's third studio album, Unbroken. Timbaland produced the tune, which also features the legendary knobmeister.
  • Lovato told MTV News the song is the polar opposite to the album's lead single "Skyscraper". "It's about staying up all night long and singing it to the boy that you like," she said. "And it's flirty and fun and it's not too grown-up, but it's grown-up enough."
  • The song also features female rapper Missy Elliott, whose catalog includes a number of hits produced with Timbaland including "Get Ur Freak On." "I was so stoked when I went into the studio. I was working with Timbaland, and Missy was there, and she was like, she heard one of the songs and she asked if she could rap on it," Lovato recalled to MTV News about the recording session. "And I was like, 'Of course, that's not even a question.' And she did, and she killed it."
