Songfacts®:

  • English singer-songwriter Jodie Connor released this club track as her second single release. The song was produced by David Dawood, who previously helmed the former Pop Idol contestant's #1 hit with Roll Deep, "Good Times."
  • Connor explained the song's meaning to Digital Spy: "Basically it's just a feel good song. When I wrote it I didn't really have anything in mind. It wasn't really personal to me, but I thought the music was really uplifting and needed the powerful lyrics to go with it. It's about getting back up and showing people what you're made of - don't let anyone knock you down. If you've done it once then you can do it again."
  • The song features rapper Tinchy Stryder. The pair previously had success collaborating on Stryder's 2010 single, "In My System," which featured Connor. The Manchurian singer told Digital Spy why she hooked up with the London MC for this song: "I've worked with him before and we're signed to the same management so we've crossed paths quite a lot in the last 12 months. I treat him more like a friend now, so it was really good working with him again."
