A cheesy fun dance song. According to Dizzee, he wrote this song for the girl group ‘The Saturdays’ but their A&R guy didn’t like it neither did the girls. In an interview with NME, Dizzee said: “It’s some knight in shining armour shit. It’s got some trance sounds, but the tempo is quite slow. Its danceable, though it’s got a really summery feel.” Calvin Harris then added: “I don’t sing on it, which is a bonus for everyone I think I’m just producing it, and I wrote the music.”
