Songfacts®:

  • For this piano-led dance jam, DJ MK teamed up with fellow house master Sonny Fodera and UK vocalist Raphaella, who also co-wrote the tune. In a 2020 Songfacts interview, Raphaella explained how the song came together: "It was actually originally a track that Sonny sent over to me about two years ago. Our managements had been in touch via email and thought it would be a cool fit. So I wrote the topline and recorded/vocal-produced it on my own at my studio in Shoreditch and sent it over to Sonny. The hook 'one night, one night' was actually the first thing I sang and it really summed up how I was feeling at the time. I think we all often need just 'one night' of forgetting the world and just being with that person we love and forgetting all our problems.

    At that point Sonny and I still hadn't met, but instantly vibed musically! About six months after that I got a text with a new version, and MK had joined - he added these great house piano lines and the drop, and the rest is history."
  • This peaked at #10 on the UK Dance chart and #40 on the US Dance chart.
