Songfacts®:

  • This song featuring American rapper Wiz Khalifa and British singer Ella Eyre received its first play on BBC Radio 1Xtra's Mista Jam radio show on 14 August 2013. Released as the fourth single from Hotel Cabana, it peaked at #78 on the UK singles chart.
  • Asked by The Source magazine how he connected with Wiz Khalifa for the song, Naughty Boy replied: "I met him through my manager, Tim Blacksmith. Stargate did the 'Black and Yellow' track and they had a good relationship with him. And I had one song on the album, the one that he's on, that I needed an international feature. And it had to be a rapper so Wiz is just perfect for not just the song, but what the album represents."

    "And in that song he plays the role of someone who's enjoying being famous and enjoying being at this hotel and doesn't really give a s--t about that girl who keeps on phoning and he did a really great job," he added.
