The first single from American Pop-Rock band Scissor Sisters fourth album was produced by Alex "Boyz Noise" Ridha and debuted on January 2, 2012 on DJ Annie Mac's BBC Radio One show. Said band member Babydaddy: "It's a song we had fun making so while it wasn't necessarily true to the direction of the album or what most people might think of as Scissors, we thought it would be good to just get out there in between albums."
The song was co-written with Harlem rapper Azealia Banks, who also contributes vocals and nabs a "vs." credit under the pseudonym of "Krystal Pepsy." Though this was Banks' first contribution to a hit single, she'd already come to the attention of various hitters and shakers in the media having topped NME's cool list for 2011 and come third in BBC's Sounds of 2012 poll.
The Hiro Murai directed music video depicts some elementary school children performing the song at a talent show.
The song was set to be the lead single from Magic Hour, but the release was canceled for unconfirmed reasons. The band did release the song as a 12-inch single, but only to 300 of their Twitter and Facebook fans.
