Crush On You
by Nero

Album: Welcome Reality (2011)
Charted: 32

Songfacts®:

  • The fifth single from English duo Nero's debut album, Welcome Reality, intertwines some contemporary dubstep with a sample of The Jets' song "Crush on You."
  • The song started off as a joke. Joe Ray from Nero explained to Digital Spy: "It was only meant to be a bit of fun, because we love the sample and it's such a good dancefloor tune, so we thought it would be hilarious to start with that and then drop into dubstep. It worked out that no-one else saw it as a joke and so we started playing while DJing and it became one of our standout tracks during our sets."
