Songfacts®:

  • This version of the Soulja Boy song became a UK Top 20 hit after X-Factor 16-year-old auditionee Cher Lloyd performed what she announced as the "Keri Hilson" version on the show. As Hilson's cover was not available in the UK, the closest version that fans could find on the iTunes store was this track by American DJ and hip-hop producer Greg Street. His "remix" mash-up combines Soulja Boy's original vocals with those of Keri Hilson to create a homemade duet.
