    English singer-songwriter Jim Irvin, who co-penned the 2004 hit "The Weekend" by Michael Gray, and also has had work recorded by Groove Armada, Gabrielle Aplin and David Guetta.

    Producer Rami Afuni, whose other credits include Kiesza's "Hideaway," Conor Maynard's "Headphones," Miley Cyrus' "FU" and LMFAO's "Take It to the Hole."
  • Asked by You magazine if her model boyfriend Oliver Cheshire minds her writing songs about breaking up like this one, Pixie replied: "I don't think he minds, because it makes great music; we are really strong."
