  • The follow-up to Philip George's breakthrough single "Wish You Were Mine" finds the Nottingham DJ teaming up with Anton Powers, the A&R at the 3 Beat label who first discovered, then nurtured him. As well as working at 3 Beat, Powers is one of Northern England's most popular DJs, whose radio show on Juice FM has been essential listen for Merseyside clubbers for a number of years.
  • The Scott Altman directed video was shot on Mallorca. It shows a young couple's holiday on the Balearic Island topped off by watching Philip George and Anton Powers perform at BCM Planet Dance. The loved-up pair are played by former Miss Universe Ireland model Lynn Kelly and London model/dancer Lewis Young.
  • The song is a garage makeover of British boy band Another Level's "Be Alone No More," which peaked at #6 in 1998. Anton Powers had been toying with redoing Another Level's hit tune for several years before meeting Philip George who agreed it was a good idea.
