Songfacts®:

  • This was co-written and produced by Xenomania, who are best known for their work with Girls Aloud.
  • Sugababe Keisha Buchanan told Digital Spy in a 2008 interview that she is not such a fan of this song these days. She explained: "I'm not really into this one as it's a bit upbeat. I actually wrote 90% of the song so I don't really know what I'm bloody on about! I think it's because as I've got older I don't really relate to the lyrics. It was more of a fun song but I just don't really feel that attached to it any more."
  • This samples German techno producer Moguai's 2002 hit "U Know Y."
