After securing a recording deal with Def Jam, the British Hip-Hop group N-Dubz flew out to Los Angeles, California to record their third studio album. Def Jam boss L.A. Reid has declared himself a big fan of the London band and lined up top American producers to helm the set. They included this song's knob twiddler, Salaam Remi, whose resume includes work with Amy Winehouse, Nas and Jazmine Sullivan. However, once the trio had recorded the tracks, they took this song at its word, cold shouldering the esteemed helmsmen and kicking them out of the studio. Dappy told The Daily Star: "Me and Fazer do all the post-production on our records – the arrangement, the beats, the mixing. We take it from a demo to the finished product. We couldn't stand aside even when working with those big American guys. In the end they said to us: 'You know what, you guys might as well sit at the desk and do it yourselves.' That was great to hear."
