Songfacts®:

  • This is the second single released from Dutch singer Esmée Denters' first album, Outta Here. It is the follow-up to her successful debut release, which was also titled "Outta Here."
  • The song was written by Denters and Toby Gad (Beyoncé's "If I Were A Boy," Fergie's "Big Girls Don't Cry"). Denters' mentor Justin Timberlake co-produced the song with Gad and also provided additional vocals and beatbox.
  • Denters explained to Digital Spy why she chose this as her second single: "I really wanted to show a different side to me. The first single was very dancey and urban, but this one is a lot more funky and live-sounding. I just want people to hear the different kind of songs that are on the record."
  • The song's music video was filmed in Los Angeles and was directed by Kenneth Cappello and features the director's Chihuahua, Cicciolina. Denters discussed the creative process behind the clip on her record label's website: "Since I wrote this song, I really envisioned the video a certain way. It's a fun and flirty song, and I wanted that to show in the video as well. So my friend and I just started writing the storyline for the video and gave it to the video director, Kenneth Cappello. He did an amazing job capturing all of it."
