  • Lyrics
  • Anna-Catherine Hartley is a Miami-born, Paris-based electro artist who records under the nom de plume of Uffie. Her name comes from the French words "Un Oeuf "(an egg), a nickname her father gave her as a child for being so rowdy.
  • This is the lead single from Uffie's debut album Sex Dreams and Denim Jeans. The long player was released June 14, 2010 in Europe and June 22, 2010 in the United States.
  • Uffie wrote the song and it was helmed by Mirwais, who produced five songs on the album. The electro crunk monster features rapper and producer Pharrell Williams performing guest vocals. Uffie was certain she wanted Pharell involved when the track was coming together; "I was so excited when I was introduced to him in Tokyo a few years back that I knew if there was ever the right track I would have to ask him to be on it. This was that track and, fortunately, he said yes."
  • Uffie described the song as "poking fun at the rap fraternity's obsession with possessions, particularly their cars."
