Songfacts®:

  • This is the second single from British R&B/hip hop trio N Dubz's second album, Against All Odds.
  • Dappy from N Dubz told Digital Spy about this song, which features English R&B/pop artist Mr. Hudson. He said: "There's a lot of tension in it. If you've been in a heartbreaking relationship, you'll be able to relate to it. It's about being a good liar and it's very sexual too, so ladies get ready!"
  • Tulisa from N-Dubz explained to Digital Spy how the trio hooked up with Mr Hudson: "That was through my mate Max. He knows Mr Hudson and we heard he was an N-Dubz fan. I was at his show in Camden and heard him do a 'Na-na-nai' shout-out, even though he didn't know I was there. We ended up chatting afterwards and decided to do a track together."
  • This won the Best Song gong at the 2010 MOBO (Music of Black Origin) Awards.
