ContentEdit

The track features the vocals of German singer Giuditta, whose lyrical "do-do-do's" make up the song's most memorable chorus line, with an Ibiza-influenced guitar beat, done over a pair of sampled tracks "Streets of Your Town" by the Australian pop group The Go-Betweens, and "Listen to What the Man Said" by Paul McCartney & Wings. McCartney and his late wife Linda both receive writing and production credits on the single because of the use of the song elements from "Listen." As does McLennan Forster because of the sample used.

Music videoEdit

For the song's video and promotional campaign during its chart run, Egyptian-German model Sabrina Elahl was featured in the music video instead of Giuditta.
