Story of Song
In an interview with Alan Carr (Chatty Man), he asked Sean Paul and The Saturdays “how did all of this happen?” their response was: “We called Sean! The song cried out for Sean, we had the song and we recorded it and we were like, you know it would be perfect, definitely Sean Paul. We were like the thing is he’s probably gonna say no, but we’ll put out there in case. And he said Yes! The legend.” Sean Paul added: “I’m always looking for new hot stuff, and I found it in the ladies right here.”
In another interview with Ryan Seacrest, Vanessa White said: “That’s why it’s fun to be pop, because we can try different genres. We’re all so different anyway and have such different tastes in music so when we do a different genre of song it feels at least natural.”
