Songfacts®:

  • This club song was released as the lead single from JLS's fourth album, Evolution. The tune finds the boys teaming up with American producer Shondrae "Bangladesh" Crawford, who has previously worked with the likes of Lil Wayne ("6 foot 7 foot"), Beyoncé ("Diva") and Usher ("She Don't Know").
  • Marvin Humes explained why they chose this tune to lead Evolution. "We wrote this song about three months ago now and, the track, we want it to [represent] the new sound of our album really," the JLS member said. "It's definitely a bit harder, it's a bit more R&B and the beats are heavier."
