Songfacts®:

  • This features Travis McCoy of Gym Class Heroes. Rowland and McCoy originally recorded this in October 2007 for the soundtrack of the French film Asterix at the Olympic Games. Digital Spy asked Rowland how the collaboration came about. She replied: "It was actually a song we did for a soundtrack, and I liked it so much I wanted to have it on my album and release it as a single as well. I love doing collaborations - it's always good to do something that's out the box. I mean, nobody would ever have thought I'd so something with Travis McCoy."
  • This is a cover of a Bobby Womack song, which originally featured on his 1974 Lookin' for a Love Again album. Soul singer Bobby Womack is probably best known for co-writing The Rolling Stones' 1964 hit "It's All Over Now." He also enjoyed some solo success, including a US Top 10 hit with the title track to the Lookin' for a Love Again album.
