Songfacts®:

  • Rixton is a boy band from the English city of Manchester consisting of lead singer Jake Roche, bassist/keyboardist Danny Wilkin, drummer Lewi Morgan and guitarist Charley Bagnall.
  • This song's music video finds the group parodying various well-known clips, which involved them dressing as women. Jack told MTV News the visual was manager Scooter Braun's idea. "We were doing a show in L.A. with Ariana Grande and we were speaking to Scooter about what we can do to get people's attentions and stuff. And then Scooter burst into the dressing room and was like 'You're dressing as women'," he recalled. "I think it was mainly a team effort, but Scooter kind of had the original idea."
  • Among the videos that the guys recreated was Rihanna's "Stay," for which Danny found a unique way to shed tears. "I've never been more embarrassed in my life," he recalled. "It was the tiniest bathroom in the world and there was just so many cameras and people, men. I just sat in a bath of onions."

    Jake, meanwhile, had to strip down for the spoof of Miley's "Wrecking Ball" clip. "I kept getting my leg caught in the chain and it was really hurting," he said. "But, no, it was good fun; apart from the woman who had to hold me up got a load of bum in her face, which was lovely."
