Cruz, who was born in Britain to a Nigerian father and Brazilian mother, had written this a few years prior to recording it. He told Pop Justice
: "I've had it for quite a while now, but when I first played it to the people at my record label I just got a load of weird looks because nobody thought it was good enough to be a single. Maybe they thought people wouldn't get it and that it was a bit too weird, but I am happy people would think it was weird. I want people to look at me and not totally understand what I am or what I'm doing - in the same way that people look at Seal. He doesn't make the music you might expect. That's where I want to be."
