Album: Killer Love (2011)
Charted: 3 39

Songfacts®:

  • American singer Nicole Scherzinger's first US and third UK single from her solo debut album Killer Love was produced by Jim Jonsin and co-written by Ester Dean, Frank Romano and Daniel Morris.
  • Jonsin reworked the international version of the song for the American release by incorporating two verses from rapper 50 Cent. This new rendition finds the G-Unit founder, giving the ex-Pussycat Doll some loving. "I like it when you're freaky, I'm freaky/ I'll explore your body completely till you feel like you need me," he raps.
  • 50 admitted that the main motivating factor in his decision to collaborate with Scherzinger was not a musical one. "I was really wanting to date her. Maybe I'll get a chance to do the video and be next to her and see what happens," he said.

    50's dream came true, as the urban, industrial-set video features 50 and Nic rocking together. Paul Hunter, whose resume includes work with Jennifer Lopez, Eminem, Mariah Carey, Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson, directed the clip.
