Songfacts®:

  • This is the first single released by Richard Rawson under his real name. Better known by his former stage moniker of Fazer, Rawson is a member of the Hip-Hop trio N-Dubz, and has also had some solo success , clocking a UK Top 20 hit with "Killer."
  • The Wanted's Tom Parker is the guest singer on this tune. "I got in touch with Tom because I'm a fan of his vocal," Rawson told Digital Spy. "I love what he does and what he brings as an artist."

    "I didn't want an R&B vocal on that kind of record," he added. "I wanted the more indie route, so I called Tom and he came down and he threw in some melodies and we came up with this record."
