Charted: 5

Songfacts®:

  • This snapshot of the difficulties of trying to keep track of all their ladies is the first single from British hip-hop trio N-Dubz's sophomore album, Against All Odds.
  • The song's music video, which cost £50,000, was filmed on September 13, 2009. It was helmed by American video director Dale "Rage" Resteghini who has worked with Souljah Boy and Busta Rhymes. A Source told The Sun: "They have really upped their game and splashed the cash. One scene sees Dappy flying a personalised helicopter. He had to fly it himself with an instructor by his side and he was very nervous."
  • Lead singer Dappy explained to Digital Spy that the trio's late manager and his father "wanted us to call the first album Against All Odds, but when he died we decided to call it Uncle B instead. That's why this time around we chose that name. It's not got anything to do with Phil Collins because we're not into copying other people."
