Songfacts®:

  • This track features Kelly Rowland. Tempah explained to The Sun how he hooked up with the former Destiny's Child singer. Said the London rapper: "Kelly was doing a radio show and she really liked Pass Out and wanted to work with me. So she called me on air! I was asleep, but it woke me, so I answered it and it was Kelly Rowland on the other end of the phone. Then a couple of weeks later we met at the Radio 1 Big weekend in Bangor, North Wales, and she said, 'Yes, I want to be on the album.'"
  • The song was conceived by Tempah as a tribute to the music which Rowland used to release when she was part of Destiny's Child. He described the song as "similar to everything I grew up listening to from Kelly, Beyoncé and Michelle."
