  • Lyrics
  • This dance pop number was the twenty-fifth single to be released by British girl group Sugababes.
  • The song incorporates the chorus of Right Said Fred's early 1990s hit "I'm Too Sexy."
  • Promotional copies of the single came packaged as giant condoms to tie in with the song's let's-get-physical message lyrical content. Sugababe Heidi Range said to The Guardian July 24, 2009: "[The record company] came up with the condom idea, and we said yeah, it's funny. But we wouldn't sell [the condom packaging] to our younger fans. I don't think it's appropriate."
  • California-based duo The Smeezingtons, aka Phillip Lawrence and Bruno Mars, produced the song. They have also worked on X Factor winner, Alexandra Burke's debut album.
  • This was the last Sugababes song to feature founding member Keisha Buchanan. She was ousted shortly after and replaced by Jade Ewen for follow-up single "About A Girl."
  • Keisha Buchanan admitted in a 2013 interview that this is her least favourite Sugababes track. "'Get Sexy' shouldn't have happened," she told Official Charts: "It was amazing working with Bruno (Mars), and we'd love to work with him in this line-up, but... I just didn't feel like that was a representation of who we were as a band but we didn't, at that point, have a lot of say."
