Songfacts®:

  • Pink collaborated with Eminem on this party song. The singer revealed to Australia's Herald Sun that the pair decided to collaborate organically without fussing over contracts and just entered the studio to record the track. "He said, 'Do you want to do a song with me?' 'F--k yeah!' I said, 'Do you want to do a song with me?' and he said, 'F--k yeah!' Handshake. Nothing signed. Done," she recalled.
  • DJ Khalil produced this banger. The Los Angeles based American hip hop/soul record producer is best known for his work on Eminem's Recovery album, including Slim Shady's previous collaboration with Pink, "Won't Back Down."
  • Pink said on a track-by-track commentary on the Spotify streaming service that this was going to be the first single until she wrote "Blow Me."
