Songfacts®:

  • This lovers anthem is the second single from British boy band JLS' self-titled debut album.
  • The song was helmed by American multi-platinum songwriter and producer J.R. Rotem, who has has written songs for Lil Wayne, Sean Kingston, Pitbull, Diddy and Danity Kane.
  • The Music Video was filmed in Los Angeles. It sees Oritsé, JB, Marvin and Aston on a Stage and meeting up with their 'girlfriends'. Marvin revealed on Welsh radio station Red Dragon FM that Oritsé got a bit carried away with his part. He explained: "Oritse's up first for this solo with this girl and the director is like, 'It's about being in love,' This one (Oritsé) only takes it a little bit too far and snogs this girl, properly. Obviously it wasn't used in the final edit but he kissed her properly - not once but twice."
  • The song debuted at #1 on the UK chart with sales of 120,000. This meant that JLS achieved the rare feat of their first two singles both being #1s with first week sales running into six figures. (Beat Again sold 106,000 copies in its debut week.)
  • This won Best video at the 2010 BT Digital Music Awards. The quartet also won the award for Best Group.
