Charted: 5

Songfacts®:

  • This slice of Electro-Pop was written and produced by StopWaitGo, who are an Icelandic production trio comprising Ásgeir Orri Ásgeirsson, Pálmi Ragnar Ásgeirsson and Sæþór Kristjánsson.
  • The song finds Mollie King singing: "You take me back in time to 1999, we hear the DJ playing 'Hit Me Baby One More Time.'" Mollie has said in interviews that she was a Britney Spears addict when she was a teenager, so the line fits her like a glove.
  • The accompanying music video sees The Saturdays travel back in time to 1989 and perform the track at a roller disco. The quintet recorded the clip on July 25, 2013 in London.
