The song also features legendary musician Dean Fraser, and DJ Smurf said the collaboration is a bona fide classic.
"This is one of those songs which will be a staple in the 'juggling'. I was speaking to Richie, who is also a good friend of mine, and I told him I wanted to produce one of those songs that are staples in the early juggling and this is what we came up with. Dean Fraser is a legend in music, and you already know everything he touches turns into gold ... so fans of real good music are in for a treat with this one, "he said.
