Inevitable

Album: Magic Hour (2012)

Songfacts®:

  • Pharrell Williams of The Neptunes was hired to produce this track. Multi-instrumentalist Babydaddy told The Sun about the band's collaboration with the American pop and dance uber-producer: "We've loved what he's done before and we went in as fans. But he actually had real love for the band and a drive to do something that made our band even better. It wasn't about him. It wasn't about egos. It was about the band."
  • Frontman Jake Shears admitted to The Metro that initially he felt tense at the prospect of collaborating with Williams. "When I go in the studio with someone," he said, "I like to know them and have a rapport with them. I'd only had a phone conversation with Pharrell. Writing a song is a pretty intimate thing and going in the studio with someone as talented as he is, with an alarming knack or melody, was a bit intimidating but we wrote one of our best songs ever. Whatever it was, it worked."
