Where You Are

Songfacts®:

  • On this club banger, rather than singing some generic lyrics about getting with a girl, Sean takes a more traditional route by singing about sticking with his special lady. "I think people are getting sick of music that lacks substance," he explained to Radio.com. "I switch on the radio and I listen to a lot of the commercial hits, I'm like, 'What are you talking about?'"

    "I'm not bashing all of Top 40," he added, backtracking a little. "It's not like that. You've got people like Ed Sheeran, singing about beautiful stuff. But I think because of the fact that a lot of kids will buy gimmicky records, that tends to fill the airwaves, fill the charts, and I think people just want some real music."
