  • Lyrics
  • On this track, Fergie links up with American rapper Q Tip and producer GoonRock, the man behind many of LMFAO's hits. The Black Eyed Peas' lead singer scats her way through the song, which combines 1920s jazz-style rhythms with contemporary house beats. The song was recorded for the Great Gatsby soundtrack and references the lavish parties held by Gatsby that are described in the novel.
  • The lyric and the melody are borrowed appropriately from Duke Ellington's 1932 standard, "It Don't Mean a Thing (If it Ain't Got that Swing)."
  • The video sees Fergie donning Prohibition-era outfits surrounded by dancers at a wild party. Q-Tip and GoonRock also appear in the clip.
