Songfacts®:

  • Felicia "Fefe" Dobson is a Canadian singer-songwriter and model. She released her self-titled Juno Award nominated debut album on December 9, 2003, which went gold. However, her second album, Sunday Love, was not released due to the album's singles failure to chart, and she was then dropped from her record label, Island. She eventually re-signed to Island and released her official sophomore studio album, Joy in 2010.
  • This is the second single to be released from Joy. Dobson co-wrote the song with Canadian singer/songwriter Anjulie. Amongst Toronto-based Anjulie's other credits are Edmonton-Raised R&B/Pop Recording artist Kreesha Turner's 2008 Canadian hit, "Don't Call Me Baby."
  • In the song Dobson sings about a guy she wants to be hers. When she was asked by Telus to reveal the identity of the lucky guy she's singing about, she replied laughing: "I'm single at the moment! There's no particular man or boy I have my eye on right now. However, guys are always trying to pick me up! Hopefully I find some cute boys soon (smiles)."
  • The song featured in TV ads for the Drew Barrymore directed movie, Whip It.
  • A version was recorded in Simlish for the PC game, The Sims 3: World Adventures.
