Songfacts®:

  • Nathan Sykes' debut solo single was penned by the former Wanted singer with UK based production duo LDN Noise. The song was inspired by a conversation between the pair, in which Sykes admitted he's no good at flirting. Speaking to Schön! magazine, he recalled: "It just came around, when we were out just outside of London in the countryside, I was working with LDN Noise and we were just chatting about nonsense and I just said, "I'm really bad at flirting", honestly. So we wrote a song that can flirt for me, it's as simple as that."
