Songfacts®:

  • This is a collaborative single by French DJ and producer Martin Solveig and Hip-Hop, Indie-Pop band The Cataracs. The song also features guest vocals by American rapper Kyle. Solveig told Billboard magazine: "It's a song that has a little bit of sun in it, and this is something I tried to bring but also something that happened naturally with Kyle and The Cataracs. They are from LA, and we made the track there."
  • The music video was produced by Corporal Films and features cameo appearances by Brooklyn DJ Tommie Sunshine and Swedish House Mafia member Steve Angello. Solveig told Billboard magazine: "To me it was absolutely compulsory that the video was going to be shot there because when I make music and listen to music I have images that go along, and this one really had that kind of flavor. I wanted a lot of fun."
