Songfacts®:

  • Here, Zara Larsson interpolates dancehall DJ Sasha's 1998 tune "Dat Sexy Body." She explained in a Genius attribution:

    "We listened to Sasha's original ('Dat Sexy Body') and felt inspired to give it a fresh take. Honestly, the producers The Monsters and The Strangerz introduced me to the track. They are from Miami so dancehall is one of their influences."
  • Larsson performed the song on the thirteenth series of The X Factor (UK) on December 4, 2016 as one half of a medley with "Lush Life" The Swede was attired in a huge pink coat, which swamped her slender frame and ended up distracting viewers from her performance.
