Songfacts®:

  • Mø collaborated with Major Lazer frontman and producer Diplo (Usher's "Climax," Beyoncé's "Run the World (Girls)") on this song. The pair first hooked up via Twitter. "I was asked in an interview who I would most like to work with and I said Major Lazer," she told The Guardian. "A guy on Twitter read the interview and tweeted Diplo, saying: 'Make this happen.' He saw it and said he was a fan, so we met up in Amsterdam and began working together."
  • Mø described Diplo to Billboard magazine as being, "relaxed, [and] very down-to-earth and cool… For him, it's all about finding these fresh, new sounds."
  • The music video was filmed in Los Angeles over a period of two extremely hot days in January 2014.
