Songfacts®:

  • This is the first single from English electronica artist Tricky's ninth studio album, Mixed Weapon. Featuring Irish-Italian Frankey Riley on vocals, the song is a reworking of the classic dancehall hit from Jamaican-born Echo Minott. After falling in love with the tune, Tricky was determined to hear how it would sound with a female vocalist, and recruited Riley to sing on the track.
