The song is a cover of a recording by American vocal and instrumental duo Belle Brigade, which originally featured on their 2011 eponymous debut album. Robbie commented to The Sun
: "In 1997 or 1998, 'Losers' would have been a single. Now you won't be able to play 'Losers' on the radio. Times have really changed - listen to 'S--t On The Radio
' and you will know."
