Album: Brighter Days (2017)
Charted: 6

Songfacts®:

  • This summery, feel-good track features vocals by Ella Eyre. It is the second collaboration between the pair. In 2015 Sigala co-wrote Ella Eyre's single "Good times", which peaked at #37 in the UK.
  • The song was initially written by Sigala with Bryn Christopher, who was the vocalist on the producer's "Sweet Lovin'" single. Sigala recalled to OfficialCharts.com:

    "He'd pretty much written all the vocals and came to me with the idea for the song. We developed it from there and thought about getting Ella on it - we share the same manager. She helped us finish the song. The difficult thing with Bryn is he comes in with that crazy voice of his, so it's about finding someone to match that. Ella's one of the few people who can do that."
  • Asked about his favorite part of the song, Sigala replied: "The hands in the air moment is probably the 'came here for love' lyric. It's not the drop, but it's the building up to it moment. It's got the pianos and Ella's amazing vocals. It's the bit that puts a smile on my face anyway."
