Story of Song

Fazer from N-Dubz group said of the song’s message: “It has a great message behind it: Forgive us for what we have done, ’cause we are young. That’s it.”

Tulisa said that her first solo single had to have this upbeat dance-pop to it. In an interview with The Guardian, she explained: “Lyrically, musically, it had to be like boom! Here I am, do you know what I mean? And the music had to represent me. So even though it’s got that urban edge, it’s got an Ibiza edge too, because I’m an Ibiza baby.”
