Songfacts®:

  • This song features British rapper Dizzee Rascal and American Hip-Hop artist, Ty Dolla $ign. Speaking about the collaboration, with Capital FM, Tempah said: "It's very hard, it's very grimey. It's the complete opposite of what people would think we were gunning for. When I played the instrumental to Dizzee he was like, 'Thank god you didn't try and get me on something that you want to make a big hit'. It's very indie and underground and raw. I'm just taking it back to the basics."
  • Tinie told Q magazine that he's been listening to Dizzee Rascal since he was 12 and when it came to collaborating, he captured some of the pre-stardom Dizzee whose rhymes he adored as a kid. "I feel like I got the old Dizzee," he beamed. "Raw, spitting lyrics about whatever he felt like."
