Songfacts®:

  • If money talks, then why them man there speakin' still?

    Here, Fredo links up with fellow Londoner Dave to boast about their wealth and luxurious lifestyle. During the hook they question why their less well-off opps think the pair is still listening to them.
  • The track marks Fredo's third collaboration with Dave, following their UK #1 hit "Funky Friday" and "All I Ever Wanted."
  • "Money Talks" is the third single from Fredo's second full-length album, Money Can't Buy Happiness. Dave also produced the track and executive produced the entire record under his Santan alias.
  • Fredo recorded Money Can't Buy Happiness after scrapping another record. "I had a whole different style album that didn't really mean anything to me," he explained. "Meanwhile, a lot was going on in life that I was angry and confused about. I really thought that once you have money, you can't not be happy inside, even if stuff's going on, but it's not like that."
