  • Lyrics
  • This vocoder-heavy duet with Enrique Iglesias was penned by the Spanish-American singer with his frequent producer Mark Taylor. Also credited are Alex Smith and Samuel Preston, who both contributed to Olly Murs' "Heart Skips a Beat" hit single.
  • Minogue didn't get to record in the studio with Iglesias. They recorded their part separately and communicated through phone calls and emails.
  • Speaking to The Sun, Kylie said that she was moved to tears after first hearing the Electro ballad in Paris as it reminded her of a certain someone. "I cried when I heard that song," she confessed. "It's so moving and I was emotional. And working with Enrique made it an even more special song. I love his voice."
  • The song also features as a track on the international and US deluxe versions of Iglesias' Sex and Love album.
  • Speaking to The Daily Mail, Iglesias said: "It happened really organically. Kylie heard it in the studio, and she ended up loving it. She sang her parts, and everything fit so well."
