PAINKILLR

Album: Glitz, Glamour, and Fun (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • Erika Jayne's first single from her second album, Glitz, Glamour, and Fun, is the fruit of some difficulties the dance music performer encountered in her songwriting. "I wrote this record because I was going through a painful time creatively and I totally wanted to numb the pain," she told Billboard magazine. "It came from a darker place in my personality."
  • After landing six #1 slots on Dance Club Songs with singles released from her debut album, Jayne was grateful to achieve a seventh #1 on the dance chart with this song. She said: "It's incredible to come off of a nearly two-year hiatus, trying other things that I ultimately didn't enjoy, then return to my roots, my core, my authentic self … and hit #1!"
