Songfacts®:

  • The third single off Naughty Boy's Hotel Cabana album features vocals from the English-born Scottish recording artist and songwriter Emeli Sandé. It marked his third collaboration with Sandé after Wiley's "Never Be Your Woman" and Naughty Boy's own "Wonder."

    MTV News UK asked the musician/producer what makes Sandé such a special person to collaborate with? Naughty Boy replied: "I think she's definitely an amazing artist and an amazing person but I think that the power is in the song and I think the songs we make like 'Clown,' which was the last single we did together, I feel like that's a song that's gonna live on longer than we think and that's what makes me excited about making music… songs that are remembered."
