  • This is the first single released by London-based grime artist Wiley after signing a four-album major label deal with Island Records, home to Tinchy Stryder & Taio Cruz. The song is a collaboration with producer Chew Fu and his fellow dub step producer Harry Seaman.
  • Wiley told the Daily Mirror January 1, 2010 that the title is a tribute to a certain famous BRIT-award winning pop band: "I was playing in a club and didn't know Take That were rehearsing in an aircraft hangar nearby," Wiley explained. "Mark Owen popped in for cigarettes and when I was writing the song, that popped back into my mind. I've got respect for any performer who fulfills their dreams."
