  • Lyrics
  • This dance thumper is the second single from American Electro Hop and Hip-Hop quartet Far East Movement's fourth studio album Dirty Bass. The RedOne produced song features Pop singer Justin Bieber on its hook. "We're thrilled to have Justin be a part of Dirty Bass," group member Kev Nish said. "Far East Movement has always focused on unexpected collaborations and mashing up musical genres which keeps making music exciting."
  • The Far East Movement guys got to know Justin after Snoop Dogg introduced them at an awards show in 2011.
  • The song's music video was filmed March 6, 2012 in Amsterdam. LMFAO's Redfoo, making his directorial debut, was the man behind the lens. The Party Rocker also appears in the clip, which features his "Party Rock remix" as well as this tune.
  • Far East Movement's Kevin Nishimura told MTV News about hooking up with Bieber. "We got to thank him for being in our world for us," he said. "When we met with him, [it was like] 'Let's do a song that caters to that audience that's outside the Far East Movement shows going, 'We can't get in, but we live that life.'' And there's that audience that's in the club popping the bottles, doing that thing, living that."
