Daddy's Girl

  • This is a track from Natalia Kills' second album, Trouble, which recounts various memories of her awkward riches-to-rags childhood. She explained to Marie Claire: "When I was born, my family had a lot, but by the time I was 11, my dad had been accused of being a criminal and we were visiting him in jail. The police took everything - all the cars, all the houses."
  • This love song is Kills' personal favorite from the album. The track explores her mother's devotion to her father while he was in prison. "I'm 26 now and I kind of get it," she told Billboard magazine of her mother's decision to remain supportive. She sings:

    "Let them take it all the way. The sweet Rozay, the Cartier
    Stop the warden, call your name
    I'd give you all my freedom, babe."

    "It's basically like, I'd trade all of these luxurious things we've ever had just to have you come back to me," Kills explained. "So that's what the champagne and Rolex symbolizes on the cover."
  • The song contains a sample from "Rich Girl" by Hall & Oates.
