Songfacts®:

  • This song borrows the riff from EMF's 1991 hit "Unbelievable." Jordan "Rizzle" Stephens told The Sun: "It's a riff that's always been in both of our heads. We wanted to have one of those songs where you could just step on stage and be ready to go. I'm surprised no one has used that riff before."
  • The song was used in the launch trailer to promote the eleventh series of the BBC show, Strictly Come Dancing.
  • The music video finds the Rizzle Kicks duo going back to school. It co-stars the We're The Millers actor Will Poulter and also features Irish TV presenter Laura Whitmore as a party guest.
  • Stephens explained the song's meaning to Q magazine: "It's about being in a club and wanting to skip the whole dancing and small talk, and just have sex with the girl. To be fair, though, the girl actually says the lines."
