Songfacts®:

  • This was the first single to be released by MS MR, who are a New York-based duo consisting of vocalist Lizzy Plapinger and producer Max Hershenow. The song was a top 40 hit in Belgium and Germany.
  • The song's music video sees the duo both painted blue. Lizzy recalled to Digital Spy: "It took three hours to paint my whole body and probably an hour and a half for Max's face and hands. It took way more time to try and take off! We shot the painted-body scenes in the morning, then that night we were shooting without it, so I had to have eight showers before I was even close to getting it all off."
