Songfacts®:

  • This retro club banger leans on one of popular music's most endearing themes: being alone is a sickness and love is the cure. Here, Dr. Love is the supplier of the singer's remedy.

    Doctor, prescribe me that drug
    'Cause I need some more of your healing


    It's the Doc's "medicine" that turns her on.
  • The song is a collaboration between the English electronic music DJ Riton and the Dutch house producer Oliver Heldens. It features anthemic vocals by the British singer Vula.
  • "Turn Me On" samples the synths from Yazoo's 1982 hit "Don't Go." It also borrows from the hook of the Philly girl group First Choice's 1977 disco tune "Dr. Love."
