  • Gabrielle Gardiner is a British singer-songwriter from Stevenage, Hertfordshire, who records under the name of Gabz. She first came to the notice of the British public when she reached the final of the seventh series of Britain's Got Talent in 2013. She finished in seventh place with 3.6% of the vote. This is her debut single, which was released on June 30, 2013 via Sony Music.
  • Gabz premiered the song, aged 14, at her audition for Britain's Got Talent, performing the tune at a piano. She sung the song again during the live semi-finals with a backing track and also in the live final, where she crooned it as a melody with another self-written song, "Lie There."
  • The self-penned track is about heartbreak. However, Gabz told The Metro that she has yet to personally experience a break up so she took her inspiration from films that she had seen.
