Songfacts®:

  • In our interview, The Royal Concept told us this track is "about a girl that struggles to achieve climax more than once during a passionate night."
  • Following a huge amount of support from music bloggers, "Gimme Twice" became a viral smash, topping The Hype Machine's chart in June 2012. The Royal Concept told Songfacts why they think the song was so successful: "We think it's a great catchy song with a nice mix of guitar driven riffs in an electronic atmosphere. Strong singable melodies are always a winning concept and we're fighting to bring it back in today's music."
  • The official music video follows The Royal Concept as they are kidnapped and forced to perform by a throng of female fans. The band spoke to us about the video shoot: "We got beat up by five cute girls the whole day, terrible really. The most fun part was meeting Phoenix, that was really cool. She's probably the best makeup artist in the world. Earlier that day she did Beyoncé and then she did us."
