  • Lyrics
  • This single by the Swedish duo Icona Pop debuted internationally on May 30. 2013. The track was produced by Stargate and finds the duo reaffirming their friendship.
  • The song borrows lyrics from the chorus of Tupac Shakur's 1996 track "Me and My Girlfriend," which was later sampled by Jay-Z and Beyoncé on "'03 Bonnie And Clyde." "We actually wrote a letter to Tupac's mom and asked if we could use it," Icona Pop's Aino Jawo told MTV News. "And she liked the song so she said yes so we felt very very honored because Tupac is one of the best rappers."
  • The song's music video finds Aino Jawo and Caroline Hjelt of Icona Pop indulging in some train-surfing. Jawo admitted that the filming of the clip was dangerous. "The train was moving but we had a lot of safety nets, even though I would have done it without them," Jawo told Hunger TV. "We had stunt men teaching us who were taking it really seriously and were like 'Don't jump if you don't have the safety nets on you!', which was good."
