  • This song finds Nina railing against men who try to impress her by boasting how successful they are. "It's about going out to clubs in Edinburgh and London," the singer told The Daily Record. "A lot of guys can be quite rude. They think they just need to buy you a drink or tell you wonderful things about themselves and you will go out with them."

    "I'm also paranoid about my drink getting spiked so I keep an eye on my drink and never leave it," Nina added. "I don't usually take drinks from random people and if I do, I watch the drink being poured. I'm very careful that way."
