Songfacts®:

  • This intoxicated party anthem was released as the second single from Ignorance Is Bliss. Skepta dropped the track just a few hours after the album's lead single, the far more contemplative "Bullet From A Gun." The two completely different tracks reflect the contrasts on Ignorance Is Bliss, which according to Skepta deals with "the yin yang of life."
  • The song features some heavily auto tuned vocals from Nafe Smallz. The Luton vocalist first linked up with Skepta when he opened for the rapper at his celebratory December 2, 2016 Alexandra Palace show.
  • The cinematic video stars Skepta and Nafe Smallz as 1970s-style gangsters. The clip was directed by Matt Walker, who previously worked with Skepta on his "Hypocrisy" and "No Security" visuals.
