Songfacts®:

  • After Jessie provided guest vocals on David Guetta's Nothing But The Beat track, "Repeat," the French DJ/producer repaid the English singer-songwriter by teaming up with her for this high energy track. The song was recorded for the platinum edition of her debut album Who You Are.
  • When the song climbed to #5 in its second week on the UK singles chart, Jessie became the first UK female artist to score six Top 10 singles from the same album. Previously, only Take That, Lady GaGa, Katy Perry and Michael Jackson had managed the feat.
  • London-based songwriting and production team, The Invisible Men, produced the song. The trio comprises former members of the American rock band Orson, Jason Pebworth and George Astasio and one time member of Xenomania Jon Shave. The threesome previously collaborated with Jessie J on her debut hit, "Do It Like a Dude" and their other credits include Conor Maynard's debut single, "Can't Say No."
