Songfacts®:

  • KIG are a London grime trio. Mr. Bubbly of the group explained their name to Female First: "K.I.G stands for 'kings in da ghetto' - it's a bit of a mad one, but it's just this thing where the two areas we're from have their differences, you know, but we looked past that and just did our thing."
  • KIG's label, All Around The World, have referred to this song as "UK Funky," meaning a hip-hop track, where the emphasis is placed on making it easy to dance to rather than its lyrical content. Mr. Bubbly told Female First about the song: "It's a crazy song that was done just as a laugh really in like 15 or 20 minutes in a bedroom. I used to be a rave promoter and hold my own nights where I'd be shouting 'heads, shoulders knees and toes' to the crowd - we made a funky song, my cousin Hitty makes beats and we just put it all together. It all came naturally really."
