Songfacts®:

  • Raghav, who is a Canadian singer with Indian parents, recorded both English and Hindi versions of this song, but says doing so on future songs isn't something he's necessarily interested in going forward. When we talked to Raghav in 2012, he said, "I've kind of separated my Hindi music from my English a little bit, but I would always like to make sure that there is a fusion there. But it has to be clever. I don't want to ever do it in the same way that I've already done it because that's lazy. I feel like at this point in my career, I'm looking for a new facet, a new platform by which I can express my cross culture kind of musical fusion."
  • The song was inspired by a melody from by Chaka Demus & Pliers' 1994 single "Murder She Wrote."
  • This features Jamaican vocalist Frankey Maxx.and Asian MC Jucxi D, who is best known for his work with artists Lamb and Damage.
