Speaking about how he recorded the song, Will.i.am said: "We recorded that during the BRITs [and] recording that at Metropolis.
"So actually we went shopping first and we were like 'hey, lets just have a chilled day' and we went shopping for shoes, then after that we went to the studio, watched the BRITs, recorded that and then trucked off to see Justin Timberlake perform.
He confessed: "So that was a pretty full day."
