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").
In The Beatles "When I'm 64," Paul McCartney asks a woman if she'll still be there for him when he's 64. In 2006, he got his answer when shortly before his 64th birthday, he and Heather Mills separated.
"Cruise" climbed from 6-5 on the Hot 100 in its 34th week. In doing so it set a record for the slowest ascent to the Top 5 in the chart's history, which was beaten by Imagine Dragon's "Radioactive" 42-week clamber to #4 three weeks later.
