This is the second single by American R&B singer Jason Derülo, from his sophomore studio album Future History.
"It-girl"' is a term for a young woman who possess the quality "It", drawing men with an magnetic attraction. The concept first arose in a Rudyard Kipling short story, Mrs. Bathurst where he wrote, "It isn't beauty, so to speak, nor good talk necessarily. It's just 'It.'" The expression reached global attention in 1927 with the Clara Bow starring silent movie It, where 'It' was the word used in billings to describe Bow's vivacious sex appeal. Bow's spectacular performance resulted in the term entering the cultural lexicon and the silent star herself became known as the "It Girl." The term has since been applied by the media to party girls and supposed sex symbols.
The music video harks back to Clara Bow's era taking place in a picturesque mansion sitting on a cliff overlooking the Pacific. "For the video, I wanted it to be an open book," Derülo told MTV News. "I wanted it to be almost like a photo album, so every single scene is kind of like a picture that you're kind of looking into our relationship. So it is a 1920s vibe, it's black and white, very high fashion — you know, you'll see me very dapper in 1920s, Frank Sinatra-ish. So you'll see the cars from that era, you'll definitely feel the vibe of the house having that 1920s vibe as well."
The video features Gossip Girl's Tika Sumpter, who played Raina Thorpe, Chuck Bass' former love interest in the teen drama series.
