This was released in the United Kingdom on April 20, 2012 as the lead single from AlunaGeorge's first studio album, Body Music. The song originally didn't chart but a year later it peaked at #55 on the UK Singles Chart after being used in a an advert for the Tesco supermarket chain. It was re-released on July 28, 2013, as a double A-side with "Bad Idea" to tie in with the release of the album.
Vocalist Aluna Francis explained the song's meaning to Billboard magazine. "It's about being yourself and being that person on the dancefloor that's making a total fool out of themselves but having a good time and saying to the person in the corner, 'Idiot! Come on, you love it!"'
A music video was filmed to accompany the song directed by Laurence Matthew Blake and Matilda Finn. Shot in black and white and released onto YouTube on August 31, 2011, it features clips of Francis dancing. The singer told Coup De Main magazine: "That was actually the director's idea - it was just something fun and fresh but something very true to us, and I like to dance so that was kind of easy." A different music video was filmed to accompany the DJ Snake remix. The clip shows a gorilla who sells drugs and has trouble fitting in.
