Album: Jessie James (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • Jessie James co-wrote this with I Kissed a Girl singer Katy Perry, T. Bruner, and T. Vitettoe.
  • This was the second single released from Jessie James self-titled debut album.
  • A demo recorded by Katy Perry leaked on the net just days after the announcement of the singing star's split from her husband Russell Brand in late 2011. The song's lyrics about falling for the wrong guy are apt ("My mama warned me about boys like you").
