It is the first single released from Rascal's fourth studio album, Tongue n' Cheek. Rascal released the track under his own record label, Dirtee Stank Recordings on 17 May in the United Kingdomentering at the top of the UK Singles Chartmarking Dizzee's second number-one single, third top-ten single and eleventh top-forty hit on the chart. This was also Van Helden's third number-one single, his first in ten years with " U Don't Know Me " being his previous Come On Over - Bee Gees - Here At Last Bee Gees Live one.
Armand van Helden emailed Dizzee the music while he was living in the US. Dizzee instantly realised it had potential to be a festival anthem, and wrote the lyrics to it with that in mind, which he claims took him 25 minutes. Rascal said in an interview with The Sun newspaper that he is unashamed of the song's pop hooks, and, despite initially having a strong dislike for house musiche has enjoyed making the song.
Rascal performed the song live during the opening ceremony of the London Olympics as part of a montage of British pop music. The song appeared in the film Kingsman: The Secret Service. A parody of the song, retitled "Minted", was used in the Horrible Histories sketch about the wealthiest man in ancient Rome, Marcus Licinius Crassus.
The lead vocals were performed The Gerogerigegege - All You Need Is An Audio Shock By Japanese Ultra Shit Band Simon Farnaby. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
