Songfacts®:

  • This reggae-influenced track features Dizzee Rascal, who has been high on Rudimental's wish list for quite a while. "We grew up with Dizzee; we all used to hang out as kids together in East London," Rudimental said. "We were working on a track and thought he'd be perfect on it, so invited him over to our studio, Major Toms. He came over one night, liked what he heard, so wrote and recorded his verse there and then! So glad that we finally got to work together."
  • The song also features the voice of Anne-Marie, who has toured with Rudimental and was the first person signed to their record label, Major Toms. Her distinctive vocals can also be heard on several other We The Generation tracks.
