Songfacts®:

  • Tempah said in a video track-by-track that this feel-good song is, "about about good vibes and 'doing your thing.'" He added: "I'm a lover, not a fighter. I've just come to do my thing and enjoy myself so don't try and get on to me about it or try and make me feel bad about everything that's going on in my life."
  • The song reunited Tempah with songwriter/producer Labrinth, a creative connection that has previously delivered such hit singles as "Pass Out" and "Frisky."
  • The video was shot from November 20-21, 2013 in Spain. It was directed by Emil Nava who also helmed Jessie J's "Price Tag" and Calvin Harris' "I Need Your Love" visuals. The clip features Tinie and Labrinth waving red flags while two girls race sports cars around a bullring.
