  • Jewel wrote this with songwriters Cesar Lemos and Itaal Shur, who told Songfacts: "That resulted from a Warner-Chappel writers camp. She was there, and we started writing some songs together and a lot of cool stuff came out. We sat in a room with a couple of instruments and started to jam. I think that song came from a loop on the Triton. We put that loop on and started playing some quasi-Indian stuff and then the next thing you know, we've got a little bit of groove. One of us comes up with the melody and she says, 'Oh, I've got a good lyric for that.'"
  • This peaked at #1 on the US Hot Dance Club Songs chart.
