Album: The Beginning (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • This dance number featuring Fergie's vocals samples Chic's 1979 disco hit "My Forbidden Lover." Booty Luv's 2007 UK Top 10 hit "Shine," previously borrowed from the same song.
  • Fergie intentionally sang this in a Debbie Harry manner in tribute to the Blondie singer. She explained to Billboard magazine: "She's one of my idols. She was at the cusp of hip-hop, singing with Fab 5 Freddy, but you know she has her rocker roots. I love to pay homage to people in songs because these are the people that helped me become who I am."
