Charted: 34

Songfacts®:

  • Compass wrote this breakbeat ballad with singer-songwriter Jayd Alexendra, who has also worked with Wretch 32, Kyra, Josh Kumra and Daley. The song was produced by Dan Carey (Lily Allen, Franz Ferdinand, Hot Chip) and Wretch 32 collaborator Knox Brown.
  • When asked by MTV UK whether he's ever begged for forgiveness, Compass revealed: "I feel so bad when I think about it. When I was a kid I used to be a bully. I was in the park and this guy was taking ages to go down the slide and he just wasn't gonna move; and I just basically had enough, so I just pushed him 'cause I didn't care back then. And the kid just went down the wooden part of the slide, instead of the actual slide. And his arm was just broken!"
