  • The lead single from Eliza Doolittle's sophomore album was penned by the singer and produced by Steve Robson (James Blunt, Olly Murs) and Wayne Hector (JLS, The Wanted). "I was in the studio and I was rambling on about something saying 'that was big when I was little' and Steve goes 'that's a great song title!'" Doolittle explained. "So I wrote down some ideas and references and we wrote the song."
