Songfacts®:

  • This is the international lead single by American R&B singer Kelly Rowland from her third studio album. The dance tune was produced by David Guetta and written by Rico Love.
  • Rico described the song's sound in an interview with Rap-Up.com. "It's just such an aggressive record, it's a club record, it's a worldwide international record. She's stretching her legs out and she's showing her true vocal ability," he said. "She's like the queen of the night on this record."
  • The song is the second collaboration between Guetta and Rowland following the Frenchman's "When Love Takes Over" on which the former Destiny's Child singer was the guest star.
