Songfacts®:

  • This song finds the Icona Pop duo detailing some of the woes of partying. It nods to Leslie Gore's 1963 hit "It's My Party," about a birthday party, which turns out not to be the happy occasion she thought it would be when her boyfriend Johnny leaves with a girl named Judy.
  • The song features MC Smiley. The South London rhymer is replaced on the US version by Brooklyn spitter Zebra Katz and by rapper/producer Ty Dolla $ign on the 2014 single release.
