Foolin'

Album: Good For The Soul (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • The second single from English teenage soul singer Dionne Bromfield's sophomore studio album, Good For The Soul, features Lil Wayne protégé Lil Twist. It was released on June 17, 2011.
  • Dionne penned the song herself. She said of the track: "'Foolin' is a song about a girl who gets taken for a ride by a guy. It's a really fun song I think a lot of listeners will relate too."
  • The song's music video was directed by Trudy Bellinger and features Chris and Wes, winners of the 2011 season of Sky 1's show Got to Dance, as Dionne's backup dancers. She told DirectLyrics about the clip: "Shooting the video was so much fun. I had to play three different characters of myself so it was a long day but I loved every second of it! I got to show a different side of myself in this video – a more glam, grown up side. I think the song still represents me as a 15 year old girl though." Unfortunately, due to scheduling problems Lil Twist was unable to participate in the video.
