Songfacts®:

  • Lion Babe is an experimental soul duo from New York's Lower East Side, comprising producer and multi-instrumentalist Lucas Goodman and singer-songwriter Jillian Hervey. The pair first hooked up when Goodman was producing under the name Astro Raw and Hervey had just embarked on a professional dance career. This is their debut single.
  • So where did the duo's Lion Babe name come from? It stemmed from Goodman's' horoscope sign (Leo) and Hervey's lion-mane like hairstyle. "We wanted there to be a certain duality, like there is with Blondie," Hervey told Billboard magazine. "With me as the frontwoman, you might think I'm Lion Babe, but it's like, no, we're Lion Babe. We liked that."
  • Jillian Hervey is the daughter of singer-actress Vanessa Williams and public relations consultant Ramon Hervey II.
