This song is a collaboration with Icelandic band múm. Gunnar Tynes from the group met with Minogue in London back in 2011, where the pair recorded the song.
The song was recorded for the soundtrack to the romantic drama movie Jack and Diane. "It is not the typical pop song we might have written for Minogue but we rather wrote it with the film in mind," said Tynes of the track.
"Crank That (Soulja Boy)" was the most successful digital track of 2007 in the US with 2,909,000 downloads. On January 6, 2008 it became the first song ever to sell 3 million digital copies in the States.
