  • Lyrics
  • The second solo single released by Mollie King, this in-your-face banger finds her reuniting with Xenomania, the pop production outfit led by Brian Higgins, who worked on the majority of Girls Aloud's catalogue.

    "I'm a huge fan of pop music myself and was thrilled about working with Brian Higgins again on this record," Mollie said. "Brian wrote and produced 'All Fired Up' which was one of my favorite Saturdays songs; he totally gets pop and I think we've collaboratively come up with some amazing records that the fans are going to love hopefully as much as I do!"
  • This was one of eight songs that Millie recorded with Xenomania. She told The Sun: "It's totally feel-good. It's the sort of song you dance to with your friends or listen to with friends on a road trip."
  • Mollie told the story of the song.

    "We had the line for the chorus first which we all agreed sounded like such a banger, so then we needed good verses and a pre-chorus. Actually, we recorded the 'na-na's' first, because we did that ages ago, and decided to pair it with the Hair Down chorus, and then it all started coming together. I was working with them on it for a good couple of months overall."
  • The visual was shot in South Africa by Cape Town music video director Kyle Lewis.
