Charted: 25

Songfacts®:

  • Diana "Wynter" Gordon is an African-American singer and songwriter who has been writing music since an early age. Her first song, "Daddys Song," which she wrote at the age of 12, visibly moved executives at Atlantic Records during her showcase. Having already written tunes for Mary J. Blige ("Gonna Breakthrough") and Danity Kane ("2 Of You"), Wynter achieved an international breakthrough when she co-wrote and sung the hook on Flo Rida's worldwide hit, "Sugar."
  • This song, her first single from her debut album, was released in the United States on February 17, 2010 and finds Gordon singing about bedroom fantasies over a pulsing house beat. She explained in an interview with Reuters that the lyrics are a product of her and her and co-writer Nicole Morier "goofing off in the studio."

    Wynter added in an interview on her record label's website: "It came about when my friend and I were in the studio just joking, laughing and pulling up words on the computer from different sites. It was meant to be more of a joke than a real song and it just happened to come out great."
  • The song reached the number-one spot on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs on the week ending July 24, 2010. It also topped the Australian singles chart for three weeks.
