Songfacts®:

  • This cod reggae track was one of the biggest sellers in the UK in 1996 with 750,000 copies. On its first outing the song reached #53 but when it was re-released the following year it went to #2 in the UK and sold two million copies worldwide. The single was re-released in 2004 after Andre's successful showing on I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!, and this time it topped the chart.
  • The song features a Ragga style rap contribution from Bubbler Ranx, a mysterious man from which little has been heard of since.
  • At first Peter Andre titled the song, 'Mysterious Man,' but his record company asked the Aussie hunk to change it for fear of him being considered gay.
  • Andre's relationship with his Australian girlfriend, Katharine Maddock, hit the skids when the singer shot the song's video in Thailand and had an affair with his female co-star in the clip, Jan Pen.
