Songfacts®:

  • This song features a children's choir. PB & J's Peter Móren told MTV News that the American rapper Jay-Z was an unlikely inspiration. He explained: "We listened to Jay-Z's 'Hard Knock Life' with the 'Annie' sample, and we needed clear, bright voices going straight through little radios. So we recorded with a children's choir. Plus, you know, cheap labor."
  • Kanye West is a fan of the Swedish three-piece. He sampled Peter Bjorn and John's breakthrough single "Young Folks" for a track by the same name on his mixtape Can't Tell Me Nothing and in January 2009 he posted this track on his blog.
