This song was co-written and produced by Tony Kanal, who is the bassist for the American rock band No Doubt. His musical work outside of the band includes producing and songwriting for his fellow No Doubt bandmate Gwen Stefani, among others.
Shontelle explained to Sound Savvy about this collaboration with Kanal: "We wanted to make a song that doesn't sound like anything else. I feel like that is what really establishes you as an artist and really sets you apart. They were just like "No, we know you can sing. We know you have swag. We know you can deliver. But you need to do something that is really going to make people's ears perk up like oh, what's that?". That was what we really were attempting on that one and I'm really happy that the feedback has been so good."
"Whole Lotta Love" was Led Zeppelin's only US Top 10 hit, charting at #4. Many of their songs, including "Stairway To Heaven," were not released as singles, as it was considered bad form in England to make people pay for singles that were on albums.
There was a rumor in the Soviet Union that The Beatles had secretly visited the U.S.S.R. and given a private concert for the children of top Communist party members. They believed the song "Back In The U.S.S.R." was written because of the concert. Actually, some fans still believe so.
The TV show Cheers was nearly canceled after its first season, but the theme song, "Where Everybody Knows Your Name," was very popular. To satisfy viewer demand, the theme was made into a full song and released as a single.
