Songfacts®:

  • This bassline club track features lead singer Charleene Rená. The Londoner previously co-starred in the promo for the Kanye West produced, Cassius Henry single "The One," and was the lead in one of the most ever commercially downloaded videos, the Uniting Nations "Out Of Touch." Rená also appeared in the 2008 James Bond movie, The Quantum of Solace as Felix Leiter's girlfriend.
  • Rudenko is Russian dance producer/songwriter Leonid Rudenko. Rená told StuffWeLike how she hooked up with the Russian producer: "Rudenko actually found me on MySpace and approached me and told me about the project and the rest was again history. It was a no brainer. Its an amazing song and he's such a talented producer so I was very happy to jump onboard."
  • Rená also starred in the song's music video, which was filmed in the beautiful country of Norway. However, she told StuffWeLike, she was unable to see much of the country, as, "it was literally get there, rehearsal, have dinner, wake up, do the video and next morning get on a plane and get home."
