Album: London With The Lights On (2011)
  • songfacts ®
  • This was released as the first buzz single by British urban girl group StooShe on 28 October 2011. Band member Karis Anderson told Digital Spy the song is based on a true story, but the events have been embroidered to get the message across. "We wanted to get the whole story across as well as outline that it is a really serious issue that we're talking about," she explained. "The track itself isn't that serious, but we wanted to highlight the seriousness of drug abuse. The real woman didn't die! We just wanted to take it to the extreme."
