Counterfeit

Album: The Female Boss (2012)

Songfacts®:

  • Diane Warren penned this song. The American songwriter has written numerous hit singles for the likes of Cher ("If I Could Turn Back Time") and Aerosmith ("I Don't Want to Miss a Thing") and this was one of two tunes she wrote for The Female Boss. (The other one, "Bitch On Heels," didn't make it onto the track listing.) Tulisa told The Daily Star: "She studied me first as a character and wrote them completely from my point of view so it sounds like something I would write myself. She was amazing."
    She added: "I did so many songs, and only a certain amount got on the album. I went with songs by the people that got me as an artist as I'm very expressive about who I am and what I'm about."
