Songfacts®:

  • The debut single released by Megan McKenna, this was released following the first episode of The Only Way Is Essex star's ITV2 show, There's Something About Megan. The program follows McKenna's pursuit of her lifelong ambitions of becoming a country singer in Nashville, USA.
  • The song's music video was filmed in a mock Western town outside London. Megan explained:

    "It portrays the song's lyrics which are all about the pressure we girls feel to look a certain way... Not to mention how men can make girls feel, as in 'Boys just don't understand us!'

    When I was filming There's Something About Megan in Nashville, I saw loads of places like this in the Tennessee countryside, so finding this mock western town so close to London was great and it gave the perfect backdrop for my first ever music video."
