Songfacts®:

  • Here, Joel Corry teams up with Becky Hill for a feel-good, hands-in-the-air dance anthem. Hill sings of her irreplaceable bond with her lover. They've had loads of tears and fights and even tried to walk away, but their history keeps them together. Because the pair has so many shared memories and knows each other so well, she will never let him go.
  • Back in 2020, Joel Corry remixed Becky Hill's "Better Off Without You." This, however, is the first official collaboration between the two artists.
  • Joel Corry and Becky Hill wrote "History" with:

    Dance singer songwriter Clementine Douglas (Chase & Status' "Mixed Emotions," Wilkinson's "Cognition."

    Songwriter Karen Poole, who previously teamed up with Becky Hill for her David Guetta collaboration, "Remember."

    The frontman of English rock band The Music, Rob Harvey. The singer is also a successful songwriter/producer including Clean Bandit's "Real Love" and David Guetta featuring Becky Hill's "Crazy What Love Can Do." He's linked up with Joel Corry on several previous occasions, including "Lonely," "Head And Heart" and "I Wish."
  • Corry produced the track with his regular partners in crime, Lewis Thompson and Neave Applebaum.
  • The lifetime bonds this euphoric belter recounts don't necessarily have to be with a romantic partner. "Think of that person in life that you've got so much history with," Corry told Apple Music. "You could drift apart but whatever happens you end up together, like you've never had any time apart. It's about that person."
