This Sandy Vee and Taio Cruz produced song is the fourth single from the international edition of Cruz's album Rokstarr. It is a remixed version of the album track featuring Australian pop princess Kylie Minogue.
This is not the first time Cruz has collaborated with a leading female pop singer. Jennifer Lopez appeared on a remix to his hit single "Dynamite," while Kesha featured on "Dirty Picture."
Cruz told MTV News how the song came about: "Well I actually wrote — as a lot of the songs that I write for other people end up being on my album — I wrote 'Higher' for [Minogue] and she, I think, she had another song on the album called 'Higher' or some other reason why it didn't go onto her record."
Cruz also teamed up with Gym Class Heroes Frontman Travie McCoy for the US release of the song and with Dutch/Flemish girl band K3 for the Flemish version.
