After recording four Top 5 singles in her native Iceland, including two chart-toppers, Glowie (rhymes with "snowy") signed an international recording contract with Columbia Records and RCA Records.
This body-positive song was Glowie's first release with her new label. "Body is all about being yourself and dancing like nobody's watching," she said.
The song was written by American singer-songwriter Julia Michaels and her frequent songwriting partner Justin Tranter. Their other collaborations include Justin Bieber's "Sorry" and Selena Gomez' "Good For You."
"Body" was produced by the Swedish duo Mattman & Robin, whose other credits include Nick Jonas' "Close," DNCE's "Cake By The Ocean" and Imagine Dragons' "Believer."
The song's music video was shot in Los Angeles. "It was a beautiful day in Malibu," Glowie recalled. "We were at this huge house up in the mountains where they had a pool, a tennis court, basketball court, and a beautiful view over the mountains. It was a dream come true."
"Islands in the Stream" was originally written by The Bee Gees as an R&B song. It was originally written by the brothers for Marvin Gaye, however it was recorded instead as a duet by Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton with the Gibb Brothers also contributing vocals.
"Won't Get Fooled Again" by The Who is about a revolution, but it doesn't have a happy ending, since in the end the new regime becomes just like the old one. Pete Townshend thought that whoever was in power was destined to become corrupt.
