Songfacts®:

  • This is a single from Taio Cruz's third studio album, TY.O. The Electro-Pop song was penned by the singer with Swedish songwriters Carl Falk and Rami Yacoub, whose other joint songwriting credits include The Wanted's "Lose My Mind" and One Direction's "What Makes You Beautiful." Swedish House Mafia member Steve Angello also contributed to the track.
  • MTV UK asked Cruz whether after the international success of "Break Your Heart" and "Dynamite," he felt under pressure with the release of this single? He replied: "I wouldn't say that I feel more pressure with this single, what I always try to do is to make music that I enjoy, that is fun and excites me – that's all you can do and then put it out there. If you let anyone pull you in any direction, you can lose yourself, so I try not to let the pressure get to me. I'll go in the studio and make fun songs, play them to my team and then play them to my fans."
